Bio Scott Hsieh works on several projects to improve CT scanner technology. His dissertation project was on the design of an adaptive x-ray filter that could control and personalize the incident x-ray radiation on the patient, to reduce unnecessary radiation and optimize image quality. Other projects include parameter tradeoffs in upcoming photon counting detectors, the introduction of a new class of anti-scatter grids, and analyses of new reconstruction algorithms.
