Our laboratory focuses on the design and optimization of medical imaging systems and reconstruction algorithms, with the goal of improving image quality and reducing radiation dose.

We apply theoretical, computational, and experimental methods to numerous modalities including CT, SPECT, and tomosynthesis.

Our collaborators include the Zablocki VA Medical Center, Froedtert Hospital, Medical College of Wisconsin, FDA, and industry partners.
