Associate Professor, Radiology
Professor, Applied Mathematics - GIDP
Dr. Kupinski has over 20 years of experience in the field of image science, and has worked and published on topics including modeling of imaging systems, image reconstruction, computation of ideal-observer performance, development of adaptive imaging, and assessment of imaging hardware using task-based metrics of image quality, to name a few. He has worked in a number of imaging modalities including nuclear-medicine, x-ray, CT, and diffuse optimal imaging. Much of his work in the past has related to small-animal imaging or with the initial design of commercial SPECT and CT imaging systems. This project is of keen interest to him since it allows the direct applications of many of the methods he has championed into a tool that will have immediate clinical impact.
Dr. Kupinski was one of the mentors for the senior design team that started this project regarding wearable sensors and motion correction. His membership in the University of Arizona Cancer Center has opened up new opportunities for collaborations with a variety of researchers.
Dr. Kupinski has worked in diverse areas of imaging including x-ray, gamma-ray, diffuse optical, magnetic resonance, and neutron imaging.
