Luning Wang, PhD
As a MR physicist, my goal is to help provide world class imaging for our patients. I enjoy bridging the gap between cutting edge MRI research and the clinic.
My clinical interests include neurologic, cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging. My goals are 1) to provide clinical protocols that take advantage of the latest available technology; 2) to provide first line troubleshooting assistance to the MR technologist and to work with the service engineer to solve more complex issues; 3) to ensure the safety of patients with implantable devices; and 4) to provide necessary education and training to our staff on the latest MR advancements.
My overreaching research goal is to take the latest advances in research and to translate them for clinical use; ensuring that our patients receive the best imaging possible.
