Dr. Rachelle Crescenzi, PhD is a translational imaging scientist and Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee USA. Her research centers around noninvasive imaging of sodium and the lymphatic system using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Ongoing research projects aim to develop sodium and lymphatic imaging methods to understand vascular disease mechanisms of lipedema, lymphedema, and hypertension. Together with a team of imaging scientists and clinicians in lymphedema therapy and vascular medicine, she is applying novel imaging to improve the recognition and care for patients suffering from lipedema and lymphedema.
