The goal of research in imaging sciences is to advance functional imaging technologies to non-invasively image and quantify the spatiotemporal distribution of physiological, cellular and molecular events and processes for biomedical, biological, diagnostic, therapeutic, and pharmaceutical applications.
- Radiation detector and signal processing
- Imaging systems, including PET, SPECT, and Gamma Camera
- Multi-modality imaging, e.g. PET/CT and PET/SPECT
Data Analysis and Algorithm Development (PET/SPECT, CT, and MRI):
- Three dimensional image reconstruction for PET, SPECT and CT
- Query by image search of medical imaging databases
- Medical Imaging Informatics
- Physiological Parameter Estimates, (i.e. Blood Flow, Binding Potentials, etc. )
- Noise Reduction Methods
- Statistical Analysis of imaging studies.
- Radiopharmaceutical Development
- Small Animal Imaging (In vivo Biodistribution)
- Combined PET/CT applications
- PET & SPECT methodology, data processing and analysis
- Computer aided diagnostics
