Description of Research

I am conducting experiments on improving biomedical engineering applications. The main scope of our research revolves around radiology, and how to improve image acquisition using x-rays. The focus of my project is to develop an anti-scatter grid, while optimizing the trade-off between image contrast and radiation dosage.
