Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS, JD Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS, JD As founder and chief of clinical services of The Neurography Institute, Dr. Aaron Filler has led the way in nerve-tissue imaging and medical treatment innovation for more than a decade. Drawing on his research at the University of London in the 1990s, Dr. Filler made breakthroughs in using magnetic resonance imaging systems in completely revolutionary ways, through a combination of software imaging techniques and expertise in reading the scans. As a neurosurgeon, Dr. Filler was driven to use technology to provide medical professionals with viewable images of nerve structures in the human body. His research into how protons behave in differing types of water in the human body resulted in two United States patents for what he would term "neurography," or the imaging of nerves. It is this patent portfolio and the resultant unique imaging technique and refinement process on which Neurography Institute is built. Today thousands of patients worldwide have benefitted directly from Dr. Filler's technological innovations, living healthier, fuller lives separated from the pain they once knew. Neurography Institute's mission mirrors that of Dr. Filler's professional goal: to help patients achieve a pain-free lifestyle wherever possible, using a balanced combination of the most advanced technologies and direct, personal involvement. General Background Dr. Aaron Filler is the world's leading expert in treatment of nerve pain. He has revolutionized nerve-pain treatment by inventing several new technologies, including, MR neurography, which enables doctors to use an MRI scanner to examine nerves - previously a difficult-to-impossible tissue to see through MR imaging. Dr. Filler's research in axonal transport is leading to a whole new generation of advanced pain medications. He has developed many new "minimal access" surgery methods that allow him to treat complex nerve problems with small outpatient surgeries. He has also pioneered the use of the Open MRI scanner to do surgeries and other therapies with the ultra-high precision and safety of the magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Filler has an MD from the University of Chicago, a PhD from Harvard University, and is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in England.

The development of MR neurography - Neurography Institute

Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS, JD
Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS, JD Unlike other internal highlighting methods that rely on contrast agents (e.g. dyes), MR neurography is based on a method developed by Dr. Filler that tunes the MRI scanning station to the unique aspects of the water signal of a nerve. Part of his innovation involved the discovery that unique features of nerve tissue could be detected with specially designed MRI magnetic "pulse sequences" - thereby sending pulses especially for nerves and getting the results no other MRI scan had ever achieved. Dr. Filler set out in late 1991-early 1992 to devise a new MR pulse sequence strategy, making it possible to reliably identify a nerve in an image. How did all this get started? MR neurography was a classic "Eureka" moment, and it's just one of the many inventions and discoveries made by Dr. Aaron Filler, co-founder and chief of clinical services of Neurography Institute. Dr. Filler first became interested in seeing images of nerves while working on his Harvard University PhD thesis in the mid-1980s. While attempting to map complex branching nerve trees that control the back muscles in the human body, he found that no matter where he turned in medicine or science, there was simply no way to "see" nerves in medical images of the human body. After beginning his neurosurgery residency training in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Filler began work on the nerve imaging dilemma. His original plan was to develop a specialized contrast agent for nerves. The idea was to use a biological phenomenon called "axonal transport" to carry contrast molecules to the interior of nerves. He started the initial axonal transport project in Seattle in 1988. Two years later, Dr. Filler began a one-year clinical rotation in London, England, as part of his residency. It was during this period that great gains were made, as he began his MRI phase of contrast research which was funded by the Neurosciences Research Foundation of Atkinson Morley's Hospital (AMH) in Wimbledon, famed for its tennis event. Keep in mind that Dr. Filler's mission at this point was to devise a contrast agent to allow the viewing of nerves in MR images - and that modern MR neurography does not require any contrast agents whatsoever. So what happened? Dr. Filler did succeed in creating injectable contrast agents to enhance MRI scans, and the research progressed so well that he stayed an additional two-and-a-half years to further his studies. But in discussing his research with an Oxford University-trained physicist by the name of Franklyn Howe, Dr. Filler realized he needed to try a slightly different direction. As Dr. Howe argued, using contrast agents to identify nerves in MRI scans was providing a "circular" reasoning to his research: Dr. Filler was using the contrast agent both to show nerves and show the agent. Determined to accomplish this, Dr. Filler set out in late 1991 and early 1992 to devise a new MR pulse sequence strategy that would make it possible to reliably identify a nerve in an image, thereby allowing him to prove that his contrast-agent experiments were performing as his research had indicated. After much reflection on the biophysics of nerves and the complex physics of MR pulse sequences, Dr. Filler assembled a radically unique pulse sequence strategy. It was based on simultaneously suppressing the image signal from all the other tissues, with the pulse sequence actually "squeezing" together a variety of differing imaging strategies. Additional testing over the next few days confirmed the results: Dr. Filler's new pulse sequence had isolated nerves in a magnetic resonance scan for the first time. Dr. Filler's pulse sequence required an extraordinarily advanced MRI scanner. This image was taken by Franklyn Howe in 1991 and shows Aaron Filler, MD, PhD loading an experimental MRI spectrometer (4.7 Tesla) at St. George's Hospital Medical School in London. Dr. Aaron Filler's pulse sequence innovation that created modern MR neurography had its first major test in November 1992. Using a clinical General Electric Signa MRI scanner modified to use his now-patented pulse sequence, Dr. Filler and his research partners were able to produce the above scan that highlights the sciatic nerve structure while darkenening all other surrounding tissue.

Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS, JD Because The Neurography Institute's founder Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD PhD JD FRCS, was the lead inventor on the original DTI patent, our team has more than twenty years experience with DTI. This remarkable imaging technology, developed by our founder and medical director, Dr. Aaron G. Filler, MD PhD JD FRCS, can often identify brain injuries that are invisible on standard MRI scans. The Neurography Institute's team has more than twenty years experience with DTI because Dr. Filler was the lead inventor on the original DTI patent (US 5,560,360) - that's where the world's first DTI brain tract image was published.
