Project Description

Professor, Radiology

Prospective students and collaborators, please visit the UW Radiology Imaging Research Laboratory website

Developing and improving dual-mode PET/CT scanners for oncology imaging
Image reconstruction algorithms (a form of inverse problems)
Quantitative imaging for treatment planning and assessing response to therapy
Describing and improving medical image quality
My research is focused on molecular imaging using positron emission tomography (PET). PET imaging is used in the medically and for basic research in areas of neuroscience, oncology, and cardiology. Trying to improve the technology and applications of PET imaging generates fascinating and important questions and problems that span multiple disciplines.
