Mark Anastasio, Ph.D. Professor of Biomedical Engineering

Dr. Anastasio’s research interests include the development of biomedical imaging methods, image reconstruction, and inverse problems in imaging and theoretical image science. Almost all modern biomedical imaging systems including advanced microscopy methods, X-ray computed tomography (CT), and photoacoustic tomography, to name only a few, utilize computational methods for image formation. Dr. Anastasio’s lab brings together imaging physics with a deep knowledge of image reconstruction algorithms to provide quantitative imaging with improved performance across a wide range of metrics. In particularly they have been actively involved in the development of several emerging wave-based bioimaging modalities including photoacoustic computed tomography (PACT), X-ray phase-contrast imaging, ultrasound computed tomography (UST) and optical tomography.
