Dr. Qi aims to develop advanced image formation and processing tools to push the boundary of molecular imaging using positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT). His lab combines in silico modeling of tracer kinetics, imaging system response and human observation to create new image reconstruction algorithms and design future imaging systems that provide higher sensitivity and specificity for lesion detection and staging. His work has specific applications in fighting cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
