My research focuses on the design, development and optimization of nuclear medicine instrumentation systems. My current research efforts are focused on the development of ultra-high resolution PET detector designs and incorporating them into preclinical imaging systems. Detectors developed in our laboratory include the micro-crystal element (MiCE) detector, the continuous miniature crystal element detector (cMiCE), and detectors that can provide depth of interaction information. In addition, we are developing PET detectors and electronics that can operate in high magnetic fields for a combined PET/MR imaging system.
