Co-Manager, 3D and Quantitative Image Laboratory, Radiology - Diagnostic Radiology
Current Role at Stanford 3D Technologist at 3DQ Laboratory. I am very much involved in improving and developing new processing methods and protocols. Additionally I have been implementing many technological changes which minimize our footprint and streamline our workflow. Examples of how this is being done are promoting a server-based strategy for workflow and consolidating non-server functions into fewer PCs. The non-server functions are almost all available from any PC through VNC clients which essentially has made everything operate like a server-based system (with the exception of only 1 user at a time).
The future of the 3DQ Lab might include the ability to do everything from remote locations as well.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Bio Jinghui Wang is a postdoc fellow in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University. His research areas include: Radiation Detection, Semiconductor devices, and Linear Accelerators. More specifically, he jointly use Monte Carlo tools (MCNP, SRIM, PENELOPE) and finite-element softwares (TCAD, COMSOL, ANSYS) to study the generation, transportation, and detection of ionizing radiations (Neutron, X-rays, electrons and heavy-charged particles) with semiconductor-based devices (Si, GaN, SiC, GaAs, and CdTe);
He currently working on two research projects:
1) High spatial resolution photon detectors used in computed tomography (CT) systems.
Initial charge cloud formation, charge migration and detection, pulse-pile up, charge sharing.
2) Treatment head in radiotherapy system:
Electron energy deposition in tungsten and W25Re X-ray target, heat transfer in X-ray target. Dose distribution in water phantom.

Senior Research Engineer, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Current Role at Stanford My current position is Senior Research Associate in the Radiological Sciences Laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Stanford School of Medicine. I provide hardware, systems, and general technical support for a group of 10 Faculty members and many students and post docs in the development of advanced medical imaging and image guided interventions. My training background is primarily in RF and electrical engineering and I spent more than 25 years in the commercial diagnostic imaging industry. Most of the projects I am currently working on involve high field MRI (3 Tesla and above), Magnetic Resonance Guided Focused Ultrasound, and other hybrid systems involving ultrasound imaging, therapeutic ultrasound or positron emission tomography combined with MRI. I have ongoing collaborations with many other medical research institutes and Universities around the world. I currently have 39 issued US patents
