        Clinical/Research Interests

        Nuclear Medicine

        • Correction for causes of image degradation in nuclear medicine such as attenuation, distance-dependent spatial-resolution, and scatter.
        • Tomographic image reconstruction for SPECT and PET.
        • Assessment of image quality by task performance studies using human and numerical observers.
        • Quantitation of activity and assessement of function.
        • Image segmentation and computer vision applications in nuclear medicine.

        Figure A

         Figure illustrates the degradation of a SPECT transverse slice.

        Above figure illustrates the degradation of a SPECT transverse slice through the chest by photon attenuation, the acquisition of scattered photons, and the finite imaging system spatial resolution.

        At left side is the true source distribution in this simulated image. Note the shape edges and uniform intensity through the soft tissues, lungs, liver, and heart.

        Reconstruction of simulated projections from this distribution look exactly like the source distribution in the absence of attenuation, scatter, and system spatial resolution illustrating the success of reconstruction methods with ideal data.

        At the left is the slice reconstructed from data which has included the impact of attenuation, scatter, and system spatial resolution. Note the variation in intensity in regions of uniform source distribution, and distortation in shape.

        Bringing compensation strategies for such degradations into the clinical use is the MAJOR GOAL of our research efforts.

        To learn more about SPECT compensation strategies for these degradations you can read a PDF file with our review chapter on this topic.
