Associate Professor of Radiology
Bruno obtained a B.Sc. in Physics from Laval University in Québec City, and a Ph.D. in medical biophysics from the University of Toronto. He also performed postdoctoral studies at Stanford University, in fast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
His main research expertise lies in the development of novel acquisition and image reconstruction strategies for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. He also has strong interest in ultrasound imaging, and in combining it with MRI. Recent work on hybrid ultrasound-MR imaging performed by the ALMA lab in general and by Dr. Frank Preiswerk in particular received the 2017 Young Investigators' Cum Laude Award of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). More generally, much of the work in the ALMA lab involves encoding useful information that relates to diffusion, relaxation, thermometry and/or dynamic motion into MR or ultrasound signals in novel ways. This information is then recovered at the image reconstruction stage, to generate images that are better and/or richer in terms of information content than what would otherwise have been the case.
Bruno is Deputy Editor and ‘Senior Deputy Editor for Physics and Techniques’ for the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (JMRI), one of two official journals of the ISMRM. He currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Student Stipend subcommittee of the ISMRM, was awarded a 'Distinguished Investigator Award' by the Academy of Radiology Research in 2016, and a 'Young Investigators' Moore Award' by the ISMRM in 1999.
