Research Interest

My research interests involve integration and expansion of MRI in diagnosis and treatment of disease. My current clinical research projects include: MRI-guided radiotherapy; MRI-based photon attenuation; quantitative hemodynamics (flow, perfusion, and diffusion); PET/MRI biomarkers; MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and thermometry; and respiratory motion measurement, prediction, and compensation.
