Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert is the owner and sole proprietor of Imaging Sciences, LLC. He serves as a consultant, including as a legal expert witness for topics related to X-ray imaging using Computed Tomographic (CT) methods for both Medical and Industrial Applications. He has significant expertise in patent infringement cases related to CT as well as other imaging modalities. He is also familiar with the processes and procedures for the development of complex medical imaging devices in the environment of reporting bodies such as the FDA. This includes complex devices in multinational corporations.

Expert was the Senior Director Technology for CT at a global biomedical technology company. He was responsible for setting CT's Technology Roadmap, oversaw a global research team of 16 individuals, controlled and allocated the CTO advanced development budget, developed and taught courses on the fundamentals (Mathematics and Physics) of Computed Tomography. In addition, Dr managed the world-wide patent portfolio for the CT division and is therefore very familiar with issues related to technology protection and patent infringement.

As the Director for Oncology Engineering, he directed the Oncology Engineering team of twenty individuals to develop an advanced geometric radiation treatment planning workstation.

As a Project Leader he developed a CT scanner specifically suited for use in oncology radiation treatment planning. He was responsible for the overall hardware and software system design and management of the budget and project in compliance with FDA Quality System Regulations.

As Director of Imaging Technology at Center For Light Microscope Imaging and Biotechnology at a leading research university, Expert directed a team of six scientists and engineers in the development of the Automated Interactive Microscope(AIM). AIM is new generation computerized robotic light microscope capable of high speed capture, display and analysis of five dimensional transmitted and fluoresence light images of living cells and tissues.

As Vice President, Research and Development for a bio-imaging research company, Expert directed the technical and marketing activities of a team of 18 scientists and engineers to perform contract research and imaging system development. Primary areas of skill included: industrial non-destructive testing, digital x-ray imaging, computed tomography, backscatter imaging, acoustical microscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging. He developed methods and tools to quickly generate systems designs for X-ray CT and digital radiography products.

As a Consultant and Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, at a leading medical research and teaching university, Expert directed a group of 6 engineers to develop new methods to operator interactively display and quantitatively analyze stack of CT images. Obtained 100% extramural funding for this research effort. He developed a workstation to facilitate the image analysis described above. This involved complete hardware and software system design and implementation. He developed a Varifocal mirror based truly 3-D display system. He was a member of the Education Committee of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Graduate School of Medicine. He participated in the definition, design, and building of the Dynamic Spatial Reconstructor. He developed the concept and generated the first numerical projection displays of 3-D CT images. Also, first demonstrated the related concepts of numerical tissue dissolution and dissection. Numerical projection is now often referred to as "volume rendering."
