Radiologist

Primary Academic Title

Elizabeth E. Mallinckrodt Professor of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine

Clinical Expertise

Diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine

Research Interest

Dr. Wahl has had a long standing interest in quantitative imaging of cancer and its response to therapy. His focus has been on PET and SPECT methods. He authored the PERCIST criteria and is interested in applying such methods of high precision imaging to assessing sequential quantitative cancer studies before and after treatment. He is also active in developing and testing new radiopharmaceutical therapies of cancer.
