Research Interest

Application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) technology in prostate cancer research and diagnosis. Piotr Kozlowski, MSc. PhD, is a Research Scientist at The Prostate Centre at Vancouver General Hospital and a faculty member at the Department of Surgery (Assistant Professor) and Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (Associate Member) at The University of British Columbia. Dr. Kozlowski is developing a MRI/MRS research program with specific applications to prostate cancer. His research interest involve studying phenotypic transformation from normal to cancerous prostate epithelial cells in animal models of prostate cancer using Magnetic Resonance (MR) techniques. The experimental techniques used in this research involve tumour blood flow measurements with MRI, tissue oxygen tension mapping with 19F MRI and assessment of metabolic status of cancerous tissue with multinuclear MRS. Dr. Kozlowski is also interested in developing new diagnostic techniques based on Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Contrast Enhanced Dynamic MRI. This research involves prostate cancer patients and is conducted using a clinical MRI scanner at Vancouver General Hospital.
