The Wang Research Group in the Department of Radiology at the UC Davis Medical Center focuses on the development of multidimensional imaging methods and their clinical translation. One emphasis of our current research is on developing and utilizing 4D (3D space + 1D time) dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) to create high-quality “movies” of radiolabeled tracers moving through the human body. These movie data can then be fed into mathematical models to obtain critically important quantitative information to diagnose, for example, cancer, heart and liver diseases. By developing advanced algorithms to exploit the value of data we collect, we can make medical imaging better, cheaper, safer and more informative in reducing the burden of disease.

 

 

We are seeking a highly motivated graduate student and postdoctoral fellows to work on computational PET/CT imaging. Interested candidates please contact Dr. Guobao Wang at gbwang@ucdavis.edu
