Parikh Lab :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Parikh Lab

Dr. Parikh’s lab focuses on developing advanced MRI processing methods to understand the causes, development, diagnosis, and treatment of perinatal-neonatal brain injury in high-risk preterm and term infants.

Our goal is to improve developmental outcomes for premature infants.

Current Research Projects

Parikh lab MRI


The PBI-MRI study is a research study to help improve our understanding of brain development in premature infants. Because brain injury and abnormal brain development are common in premature infants, we want to understand what causes it and what can help make it better. Click on PBI-MRI study for more information.

Early Prediction Study

The Early Prediction study is a follow-up study to the PBI-MRI study. We are trying to understand what causes brain injury and abnormal brain development in premature infants. Click on Early Prediction study for more information.

Using Brain Imaging Technology to Help Reduce Developmental Delays in Preemies (Video)

The Parikh Lab is using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to create detailed, 3D images of premature babies' brains. These images help doctors to identify which areas of the brain may have suffered an injury and how these could potentially lead to developmental delays. With this brain imaging, doctors can offer early intervention therapies (like physical therapy) to babies in the NICU and after discharge that may help to reduce developmental delays or disabilities later down the road.

"Evolution of an Atlas" - Feature Article in Pediatrics Nationwide

Adult brain atlases have existed for years. Why is it so crucial — and so difficult — to build one for preemies?
