A tri-modality x-ray fluorescence, x-ray luminescence, x-ray transmission computed tomography imaging platform for monitoring and stimulating metal-containing nanoparticles (2017-12-21)X-ray-activated photodynamic therapy (X-PDT) techniques have gained traction for its potential to impart therapeutic effects at greater depths than possible with traditional photodynamic therapy , . Interestingly, ...
(2018-07-16)Head and neck cancer (HNC) is collectively a group of cancers that usually begin in mucosal surfaces inside the head and neck. Due to the complex anatomy and vital physiological role of the tumor-involved regions, the goal ...
(2019-04-17)From preventing the threat of nuclear weapons proliferation to monitoring the transportation of special nuclear materials, nuclear radiation detection plays an important role in national security applications. However, ...
Penalized maximum likelihood method for reducing limited-angle artifacts in image reconstructions for a dual-panel high-spatial-resolution pet system (2019-04-23)Whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) system has limited spatial resolution for imaging human head and neck cancer (HNC) due to the small size of lymph nodes. We are developing a dual-panel high-spatial-resolution ...
(2019-04-17)Efficiently monitoring a geographic region's radiation level and detecting anomalous radiation sources is an essential issue in homeland security. This task includes identifying illicit movement of special nuclear material, ...
