I'm an ABR board-certified medical physicist who specializes in diagnostic medical physics and an ODH certified radiation expert in mammography and diagnostic other than mammography. I received my PhD in biophysics with a specialization in comprehensive engineering and science of biomedical images from The Ohio State University. Currently, I serve as an assistant professor of medical physics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
My clinical responsibilities include radiation safety and quality program development, oversight, and maintenance; compliance testing of imaging equipment; acceptance testing of new equipment; radiation shielding design and evaluation; ACR accreditation for MRI and CT; patient dose monitoring and evaluation; and trouble-shooting image quality problems.
My primary area of research is advanced quantitative imaging methods and their translation to clinical applications. Currently, I'm focused on the development of the perforator phase contrast angiography (pPCA) technique, a novel non-contrast MRA method for sub-millimeter imaging of small perforating vessels supporting tissue flaps used in plastic reconstructive surgeries.
