Physics of quantitative imaging systems
Development of imaging devices with enhanced quantitative capabilities through incorporation of new sensors, data acquisition protocols, imaging trajectories, and contrast mechanisms.
- Recent research includes optimization of ultra-high resolution CT for imaging of bone and lung microstructure, evaluation of new x-ray detector designs (including novel pixelated scintillators for high-resolution imaging), investigation of robotic x-ray devices for anatomical measurements of weight-bearing skeleton, and development of spectral imaging hardware for better quantification of bone composition.
