AAPM awards research funding to BME postdoctoral fellow

Warren GraysonGrace Jianan Gang, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the I-STAR Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was awarded a $25,000 Research Seed Funding Grant for her proposal on task-based imaging at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) in Austin, Texas.

Grace's work extends new methods for modeling image quality in CT in a way to directly incorporate the imaging task in the acquisition and reconstruction of 3D images, offering improvement in image quality and reduction in radiation dose. Grace works under the supervision of Dr. Jeff Siewerdsen.
