Jerome Zhengrong Liang, Ph.D.
Professor, Departments of Radiology, Computer Science, and Physics
Program in Biomedical Engineering.
To develop quantitative SPECT imaging modality as a cost-effective
means for patient diagnosis. To develop high resolution PET as
a functional research imaging modality. To develop virtual
colonoscopy as a cost-effective procedure for colon screening.
To develop automatic method for brain-tissue segmentation in
diagnosis of disorders. And to build various models, in terms of
physics, mathematics and statistics, to simulate the practical
problems above and then to validate the models by experiments.
