Research activities

Dr. Frayne’s research interests are in the development and application of new imaging techniques and tools in humans for the study, detection and treatment of neurovascular disease. Current specific interests include angiography, perfusion/permeability and quantitative iron imaging in stroke and small vessel disease, and applications of these and other imaging techniques to human clinical trials. He is also interested in advanced image reconstruction and signal processing strategies, and deep learning for large scale imaging studies and trials. His work bridges natural science and engineering through to clinical application. In addition to his core research interests, he actively collaborates with other researchers, particularly in the imaging of ALS, concussion, MS, and epilepsy.
