Biomedical Imaging
Medical imaging with PET, X-ray CT, MRI, and SPECT; Imaging simulation; Preclinical imaging
Dr. Lalush's current research interest is in simultaneous PET and MR imaging, especially with respect to MRI-guided correction of the PET image for attenuation and deformable motion. He also collaborates with clinical scientists to develop new applications for PET/MR in cancer and neuroscience.

Dr. Lalush develops new technologies for X-ray imaging, including techniques for preclinical X-ray molecular imaging using nanostructured contrast agents, as well as system design and optimization for tomosynthesis and CT systems based on arrayed X-ray sources. Realistic imaging simulation is a key element of all research in Dr. Lalush's lab.

Dr. Lalush's expertise and past areas of research include tomographic reconstruction algorithm development; SPECT and PET imaging; X-ray system design and optimization; image processing; and signal processing.
