London, September 2015: Imanova is excited to have Dr Richard Carson of Yale University deliver a presentation at their London office today.
Richard E. Carson received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 1983 in Biomathematics. From that time on, he has focused his research on the development and application of mathematical techniques for the study of human beings and non-human primates with Positron Emission Tomography (PET), a noninvasive imaging technology that uses radiopharmaceuticals to trace in vivo physiology and pharmacology. From 1983 until 2005, Dr Carson was an integral part of the PET program at the National Institutes of Health, rising to the rank of Senior Scientist. In 2005, Dr Carson joined the faculty of Yale University as Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Diagnostic Radiology. He is Director of the Yale PET Center, a state-of-the-art facility focused on quantitative PET techniques using novel radiopharmaceuticals. Dr. Carson is also Director of Graduate Studies in Biomedical Engineering.
Dr Carson has been at Imanova for almost two weeks, sharing his research on PET tracer kinetic modelling. His focus is on the development and applications of new tracer kinetic modelling methods and algorithms and on research in PET image reconstruction and image quantification.
