Faculty, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

Recent research efforts have focused on strategies to increase the temporal and spatial resolution of a variety of MR angiographic techniques. The work contributes to the efforts of a larger interdisciplinary team composed of interventional neuroradiologists, medical physicists and bioengineers. Dr. Turski is past chair of the department of radiology and remains active within the ASNR, ACR and AMA. He has authored over 100 publications, two monographs, and one textbook.
