Expertise: Magnetic resonance imaging, neural, cardiac
Dr. Wang is the Faculty Distinguished Professor of Radiology and Professor of Biomedical Medical Engineering at Cornell University, Fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and Fellow ofInternational Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Dr. Wang’s major research interests have been in the area of MRI technology development and clinical and biological applications. His work includes the cardiac navigator motion correction method that forms the foundation for high resolution cardiac MRI, time resolved MRA and bolus chase peripheral MRA that have become routinely used in clinical practice, and accurate segmentation method that enables automatic analysis of large image data. Recently, he has led the pioneer development of quantitative susceptibilitymapping to study tissue magnetic property that opens a new arena of MRI with applications ranging from quantitative mapping of contrast agents in molecular MRI to brain iron deposition in neurodegenerative diseases and deoxyhemoglobin in neuronal function.
