  • Shannon Walters

    Shannon Walters

    Executive Manager, Radiology - Diagnostic Radiology

    Current Role at Stanford I consider myself an innovation enabler and workflow optimization enthusiast. At Stanford 3D and Quantitative Imaging Lab, I work closely with healthcare providers, researchers, and educators to enable effective health visualization. Recent innovations are of particular interest to me; such as 3D Printing, immersive volumetric visualization, clinical implementation of validated AI algorithms, and the general concept of reporting concise changes over time.

    Adam Wang

    Assistant Professor of Radiology and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering

    Bio My group develops technologies for advanced x-ray and CT imaging, including novel system design, model-based image reconstruction, spectral imaging, and radiation transport methods. I am also the Director of the Zeego Lab and the Tabletop X-Ray Lab.

    I completed my PhD in Electrical Engineering at Stanford under the supervision of Dr. Norbert Pelc, developing strategies for maximizing the information content of dual energy CT and photon counting detectors. I then pursued a postdoc at Johns Hopkins with Dr. Jeff Siewerdsen in Biomedical Engineering, developing reconstruction and registration methods for x-ray based image-guided surgery. Prior to returning to Stanford in 2018, I was a Senior Scientist at Varian Medical Systems, developing x-ray/CT methods for image-guided radiation therapy.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Wang is the Director of Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology, and the Co-PI of the Stanford Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence. His research interests lie in nanotechnology and information storage, including magnetic/spintronic biochips, in vitro diagnostics, cell sorting, magnetic nanoparticles, nano-patterning, spin electronic materials and sensors, as well as magnetic integrated inductors and transformers.

  • Ronald  D. Watkins

    Ronald D. Watkins

    Senior Research Engineer, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    Current Role at Stanford My current position is Senior Research Associate in the Radiological Sciences Laboratory and the Molecular Imaging Laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Stanford School of Medicine. I provide hardware, systems, and general technical support for a large group of Faculty members and many students and post docs in the development of advanced medical imaging, metabolic imaging and image-guided interventions. My training background is primarily in RF and electrical engineering and I have spent more than 25 years in the commercial diagnostic imaging industry. Most of the projects I am currently working on involve instrumentation for metabolic imaging using magnetic resonance of hyperpolarized carbon nuclei. I am also involved in the development of Hybrid systems that combine Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance imaging. Other projects I am involved in use focused ultrasound for neuro-stimulation or drug delivery via blood brain barrier. I also provide RF coil design and support for small animal imaging and various research studies. I have ongoing collaborations with many other medical research institutes and Universities around the world. I currently have 40 issued US patents and 100 pear reviewed publications.

  • Emmanuelle Weber

    Emmanuelle Weber

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    Bio Dr. Emmanuelle Weber is a physicist that obtained a Ph.D. focused on the development and applications of the Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) method. She allied NMR and EPR spectroscopy studies in her research and recently joined Dr. McNab?s group to work on diffusion MRI.

  • Martin (Marinus) Willemink

    Martin (Marinus) Willemink

    Instructor, Radiology

    Bio As a physician, epidemiologist, biomedical engineer and scientist, I am optimizing healthcare by translating clinical needs into technical solutions. I am working at Stanford University and have 8 years of research and clinical experience in radiology.

    My clinical experience as a physician in diagnostic radiology and research experience in the field of cardiovascular and chest imaging allow me to recognize medical shortcomings. While my technical background with a PhD (cum laude) in the application of medical image reconstruction allows me to solve these with adequate technical solutions.

    I have leadership experience from active involvement in multiple (inter)national scientific organizations, co-directing educational courses, and supervising >15 graduate students.

    I have published >60 peer-reviewed papers, have been invited to present >15 lectures at international scientific meetings, am a Fulbright laureate and received >$300,000 of funding from the American Heart Association, Philips Healthcare, Stanford University and more. I am designated as a Fellow of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT), co-director of the UMC Utrecht Spectral CT Academy, and an active member of multiple European and North American clinical scientific societies. My work has been recognized with awards from the Radiological Society of North America, European Society of Radiology, Society of Thoracic Radiology, European Society of Thoracic Imaging, among others.
