MRI Research Amsterdam UMC

Sofieke de Jonge is awarded with the AGEM innovation grant

“The AGEM innovation grant has allowed me to continue my research as a postdoctoral fellow and project leader and evaluate the developed technique for MRI motility assessment in a patient population, chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction (CIPO). The grant was also beneficial for the AGEM institute as a whole. First, this alliance project has boosted research collaboration between the involved departments in both Amsterdam UMC locations in the field of bowel motility and gastrointestinal MRI. Second, the use of cine-MRI with a quantification technique has gained novel insight in global small bowel motility in CIPO patients. The observed motility patterns lay the groundwork to use cine-MRI in clinical practice for CIPO and might impact the current diagnostic workup and treatment decisions in this complicated patient group. Third, the application and therefore relevance of cine-MRI is clearly much broader than CIPO patients only. The current project establishes the value of this technique in measuring disturbed gastrointestinal motility in disease, this knowledge can be used in different patient groups. This CIPO project has paved the way to initiate more collaboration to develop, investigate and evaluate the clinical value of the MRI.”
