The applied imaging physics group is involved with research and development of x-ray imaging systems for diagnosis and guidance of minimally invasive vascular procedures. The procedures require high resolution, real-time imaging of small endovascular devices such as stents or blood flow diverters primarily for the neuro- and cardio- vasculatore. New x-ray image detectors, sources, and computing controls are developed as well as evaluated using detectability metrics as well as in practice using 3D printed patient-specific vascular phantoms made in our lab.
Student Skill-Set Needed: Sound knowledge of basic physics, good computer skills, good electronic and mechanical laboratory skills, ability to work in a team
Available: Fall, Spring, Summer
