    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology

    Bio Dr. Wei Bian received his PhD from the UC Berkeley and UCSF graduate program in Bioengineering. His Ph.D. focused on using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate tissue susceptibility in the human brain. Using MR phase and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI), he studied iron-induced susceptibility contrast in multiple sclerosis lesions and cerebral microbleeds. To define the spatial relationship between microbleeds and blood vessels, he implemented a multi-echo MRI sequence to acquire images from arteries, veins and microbleeds simultaneously. He also designed a algorithm to quickly and accurately identify microbleeds automatically. Now at Stanford, Wei is a postdoctoral fellow in the Richard M. Lucas Center for Imaging. He is focusing on studying inflammation in multiple sclerosis using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and effective relaxation rate (R2*) mapping with ultra-high resolution 7T MRI. His methods will expand into other disease such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, and Traumatic Brain Injury. He is also working on sequence development for faster and more effective acquisitions for QSM as well as quantitative imaging (volumetric analysis and DTI).

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Joshua's research focus at Stanford has been enabling technologies and instrumentation for future and vital roles of Positron Emission Tomography (PET), including: Ultra-fast Time-of-Flight PET (TOF-PET) instrumentation, clinical PET detector technology with high sensitivity and resolving power for diagnostics in early stage cancer, high resolution MRI-compatible TOF-PET detector technologies for oncology and neurology, and devices for precise quantification of tracer kinetics in dynamic PET imaging. The ultimate goal is to introduce new PET imaging systems that advance capabilities of whole body clinical imaging in sensitivity, accuracy, and precision for oncology, neurology, and cardiology.

    He is also interested in the application of instrumentation and algorithms for imaging in biomedical, high energy and applied physics, astronomy, energy, materials, nuclear security, and autonomous vehicle research.
