PET Imaging

SPECT Imaging

My research is in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging instrumentation and data analysis (PET, SPECT, and multi-modality PET/CT, SPECT/CT, PET/MR), involving various clinical and research cancer applications.  One area of focus has been developing instrumentation for high-resolution PET and SPECT imaging of small animals for preclinical cancer research.  I have been a co-investigator in several clinical trials of new cancer imaging agents, including an upcoming collaboration between Case / UH / Cleveland Clinic (with Zhenghong Lee and Yogen Saunthararajah).
