- I have an interest in a wide range of physiological measurements in the brain and heart using MR Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) imaging and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) techniques.
- My recent academic interests are the quantification of cerebral permeability in human and rat models of stroke and cerebral tumor using MRI contrast agents, measurement of cerebral blood flow, transfer rate, blood volume, mean transit time, arterial input function modeling, pharmacokinetic modeling, model averaging, adaptive models and applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in DCE-MRI data analyses.
- I am also actively working on the outcome prediction of stroke infarction from acute DCE and non-DCE MR information in human using different statistical and analytical modeling.
- I am familiar with brain lateralization for Epileptic patients as well as Radiotherapy Treatment (RT) planning and shielding.
- Since 2009, I have been studying MR quantitative biomarkers of drug efficacy for RT and anti-angiogenesis drugs in breast cancer and brain tumor patients.
- I have technical expertise in applied mathematics and scientific applications programming and have developed, maintained, and documented NeuroPipes, a standard suite of reconstruction, post-processing, and filtering programs for MRI data acquired on different MR consoles/machines (7T and 3T).
