Dr. Madore obtained a B.Sc. in Physics from Laval University in Québec City and a Ph.D. in Medical Biophysics from the University of Toronto. He also performed postdoctoral studies at Stanford University, in fast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
His main research expertise lies in the field of medical imaging, more specifically in the development of novel acquisition and reconstruction strategies for MRI. He also has a strong interest in ultrasound imaging, and in combining it with MRI. His lab developed hybrid MRI-ultrasound setups and sensors that are providing useful information for monitoring breathing and/or cardiac motion during MRI or PET imaging, and for tracking the motion of the imaging probe in 3D during ultrasound imaging. More generally, a guiding philosophy of his lab has been that scanners of the future will be equipped with a variety of sensors that will monitor both patient and hardware, feeding relevant information to reconstruction algorithms based on machine learning, for enhanced imaging.
Dr. Madore is Deputy Editor and ‘Senior Deputy Editor for Physics and Techniques’ for the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (JMRI), one of two official journals of the ISMRM. He currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Student Stipend subcommittee of the ISMRM, was awarded a ‘Distinguished Investigator Award’ by the Academy of Radiology Research in 2016, and a ‘Young Investigators’ Moore Award’ by the ISMRM in 1999.
