Research Interest:

My main research interests are breast CT image reconstruction and breast tissue decomposition. I haso am involved with itterative rconstruction based on several algorithms, such as Dual-Dictionary Learning and Tight-Frame. The goal is to develop a method that can produce comparable quality reconstructions using fewer projections than the conventional Filter-Back Projection (FBP) method for the Breast CT. I also measure the breast composition by decomposing the breast tissues into water, lipid and protein. My other research interests include breast density measurement in Mammography and the development of the spectral Mammography system and spectral breast CT system.
