Enrico De Vita is a Senior Clinical Scientist (Magnetic Resonance Physics group) in the Lysholm Department of Neuroradiology, at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
Within the group he is the lead for research image analysis and physiologically-sensitive neuroimaging methods development.
Enrico’s priorities are:
1) translating the most advanced MRI acquisition and analysis methods for diagnosis or treatment into the NHNN neuroradiology service;
2) developing MRI acquisition and post-processing methods to provide novel imaging biomarkers, and using these to establish natural history and measure response to therapy in proof-of-principle investigations of new treatments as well as elucidating underlying disease mechanisms.
His main areas of research interest are MR Spectroscopy (mainly applied to neuro-oncology) and non-invasive MR measurement of cerebral perfusion with Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL).
He currently contributes to clinical and research projects related to prion disease, dementia, and Huntington’s disease, oncology and epilepsy as well as to natural history studies.
