The general field of the research in my lab is the development of
novel systems for medical imaging. Of particular interest are imaging
systems utilizing x-rays (i.e. radiography, x-ray tomosynthesis, x-ray
computed tomography (CT)) and/or nuclear medicine (i.e. scintigraphy,
gamma ray emission tomosynthesis, single photon emission computed
tomography (SPECT), and positron emission computed tomography (PET)).
In recent years we have focused on the development of multimodal hybrid
systems that integrate anatomic and functional image sets. Current
application areas include breast cancer detection and characterization,
intraoperative image guidance, and pre-clinical in vivo imaging. The
following projects are ongoing.
- Dual modality tomographic breast imaging
- Intraoperative multimodal image guidance
- Image-guided surgery of non-palpable breast lesion
- Molecular Imaging for Small Animals
