The research in the Wang Lab at UC Davis Radiology focuses on the theory and practice of parametric imaging with dynamic positron emission tomography (PET). We develop advanced imaging algorithms and derive quantitative parametric imaging biomarkers to make PET molecular imaging better, cheaper, safer, and more informative in reducing the burden of human diseases such as cancer, liver disease, and heart disease.
