MRI (soft tissue contrast) and PET (tissue functional information) image data add significant information to the radiation therapy planning process. My work in this area focuses on the correction (un-distortion) of MR images and in the case of PET on their use for the definition of biological target volumes and patient follow-up.Quantitative imaging
By acquiring sequential scans, the temporal evolution of a tracer’s distribution can determined
. I am interested in applying this multivariate information to quantitative Nuclear Medicine imaging in both, clinical and pre-clinical settings: for the characterization of novel radiotracers by employing tracer kinetic models as a way to interrogate the imaged tissue and measure its response in vivo, as well as radioisotope dosimetry.
