Curtis L. Johnson

Curtis L. Johnson (M’10) received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA, in 2007, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA, in 2010 and 2013, respectively. He is currently the Assistant Director for MR Operations in the Biomedical Imaging Center, Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois. His research interests include image acquisition and reconstruction for quantitative neuroimaging methods, particularly magnetic resonance elastography. Dr. Johnson received a Beckman Graduate Research Fellowship in 2012 from the University of Illinois. He also received the Summa Cum Laude and Magna Cum Laude awards from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine in 2013 and 2014, and the Young Investigator Award at the 2014 IEEE EMBS BRAIN Grand Challenges conference.

Improved Low-Rank Filtering of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging Data Corrupted by Noise and B0 Field Inhomogeneity
Magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) is a unique tool for molecular imaging without exogenous contrast agents. For example, MRSI allows for mapping many brain metabolites, such as N-acetylaspartate, Choline, and Creatine, which provide useful information about neuronal viability, cellular membrane... Read more
