Welcome to the Quantitative Tomography Laboratory!

Our team pursues interdisciplinary research towards enhanced quantitative image generation and analysis for tomographic medical imaging devices (e.g. PET, SPECT). We focus on applications in cancer imaging (including a provincial PET physics program that we lead at the BC Cancer Agency) as well as brain imaging (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease). We aim to develop and validate novel solutions for medical device data acquisition, data correction, image reconstruction and quantification. We seek solutions that can transform clinical practice and make a difference in healthcare and in people’s lives.

We are a multidisciplinary group involved in education and research in tomographic medical devices, pursuing and integrating diverse research areas including hardware engineering (e.g. motion tracking), signal processing (image reconstruction, processing and quantification), machine learning, computer observer modeling and biological compartmental modeling.
