Dr. Arman Rahmim Laboratory pursues interdisciplinary research towards enhanced quantitative image generation and analysis for tomographic medical imaging devices (e.g. PET, SPECT). Through extensive collaborations, the lab focuses on applications in cancer imaging (including a provincial PET physics program that we lead at BC Cancer) as well as brain imaging (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease). They aim to develop and validate novel solutions for medical device data acquisition, data correction, image reconstruction and quantification. They seek solutions that can transform clinical practice and make a difference in healthcare and in people’s lives.
This is a multidisciplinary group involved in education and research in tomographic medical devices, pursuing and integrating diverse research areas including hardware engineering (e.g. motion tracking), signal processing (image reconstruction, processing and quantification), machine learning, computer observer modeling and biological compartmental modeling.
