Mass General Research Wins Best Image Award at Cardiovascular Conference

Choukri Mekkaoui, PhD, a researcher at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, won the “best image” award at the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) conference in Nice, France earlier this year.

He received the award for the image at top, titled “The Heart of Renoir’s Little Girl with a
Spray of Flowers,” which he generated by applying diffusion MRI tractography to a human heart and depicting its fiber architecture using the color schemes in Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s celebrated painting. (The original painting is shown below Dr. Mekkaoui’s image).
