Research Interests:
Translational medical imaging, PET / Advanced MRI and CNT x-ray CT

My research interests are centered on translational medical imaging research for all modalities, including x-ray, MR, PET and ultrasound. My focus is on clinical applications of the carbon nanotube x-ray sources and advanced PET and MR imaging techniques for oncology and stroke. Clinically, I am a neuroradiologist.
