Research Interests

Dr. Hui Zhang’s researches focus on medical imaging, including positron emission tomography (PET) and x-ray computed tomography (CT). His lab carries out simulations from detectors to complete imaging systems using Monte Carlo based methods, designs and builds detectors, system electronics and prototype systems, develops data correction and image reconstruction algorithms as well as data analysis and visualization tools. He hopes the technology and tools that are developed can be of help to clinics in the process of translational medicine.

  • Imaging Physics, including PET, X-ray, and CT imaging
  • Instrumentation for medical imaging systems (detectors, high-speed electronics, etc.)
  • Tomographic image reconstruction and data analysis
