About us

Our research interests include the development of novel medical imaging instrumentation, i.e. hybrid PET-MRI and wearable PET, and image analysis algorithms for in vivo imaging of human body and living animals. In terms of instrumentation development, this work involves Monte Carlo simulation, radiation detector design, front-end analog electronics design, FPGA based data acquisition system design, and system integration with these innovations. We have successfully developed a preclinical PET for the first time in Korea and silicon photomultiplier based MR compatible PET insert for the first time in the world.
