Syed Rahmanuddin’s research focus involves developing the latest radiology imaging techniques for early cancer detection. These methods include using 3D imaging for ultrasound, computed tomograph and magnetic resonance modalities. The transition from traditional 2D to 3D radiology is highlighting important hidden information to diagnose and treat disease, especially in the oncology area. Using this advanced 3D technology, Rahmanuddin is able to explore radiology data at the pixel level to not only diagnose disease but to help clinicians predict disease outcome.
“This area of research is growing dramatically. I consider 3D radiology the future of radiology,” he says. “My goal is to investigate more imaging biomarkers for the early detection of tumors in all different areas of the body.”
