Xing Laboratory

Medical Physics

Our vision is to be a premier laboratory of artificial intelligence (AI), biomedical physics, and bioengineering in the world. We are embarking systematic research on various important issues in these fields by combining our strengths in medical physics, engineering, biology, and medicine. The following are a few highlights of our current research focuses:

Development of novel AI strategies for disease diagnosis, treatment planning, therapeutic guidance, prognosis and outcome assessment

Deep learning-driven image reconstruction and analysis, as well the clinical implementation of the novel quantitative image processing techniques

Nanotechnology and molecular/biological imaging for precision medicine
