Benjamin M.W. Tsui

Professor

Primary Appointment: Radiology and Radiological Science

Research Interests

  • imaging theory
  • Monte Carlo simulation
  • collimator design
  • image evaluation
  • two-dimensional and three-dimensional image reconstruction algorithm development
  • quantitative SPECT imaging techniques

Benjamin Tsui did his postdoctoral training at, and was on the faculty of, the University of Chicago before joining the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Radiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1982. His research interest is in medical imaging—particularly in the areas of Single-Photon Computed Emission Tomography (SPECT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Specific research projects include imaging theory, Monte Carlo simulation, collimator design, image evaluation, two-dimensional and three-dimensional image reconstruction algorithm development, and quantitative SPECT imaging techniques. He is a PI of 5 NIH and DOD research grants and subcontracts.

Secondary Appointment: Electrical and Computer Engineering
