Dr. Dean Chapman Theme Lead, Image Acquisition Technologies

Dean Chapman’s research involves the use of synchrotron radiation and x-ray optics directed to medical and biological problems, specifically in the area of x-ray imaging. His present research is directed toward a fundamental understanding of the contrast mechanisms, methods to independently extract the mechanisms into images, and computer modeling of tissue systems. Other research he is involved in relates to efforts to develop laboratory based DEI systems with the possible extensions to clinical systems.
