Research Title: Multichannel 3D cone trajectory development for MR abdominal/cardiac imaging

Research Description: Kwang Eun's research interests involve the combination of mathematics, electronics, and biology for healthcare applications. He aims to develop novel systems and algorithms for biomedical imaging related to x-ray computed tomography (CT). He plans to develop a new CT scanner capable of energy discrimination for incident x-ray photons. Finally, he hopes to tackle the biggest challenge in cardiac imaging: how to obtain accurate results while accounting for the motion of the beating heart.
