Andrew Reader, PhD
Andrew Reader's research focuses on image reconstruction, modelling and kinetic analysis for high-resolution positron emission tomography (PET) of the brain. His research aims in particular to advance the image reconstruction algorithms for the MNI's high-resolution PET scanner (the HRRT). Significant improvements in image quality can be obtained by i) respecting the original precision of the measured data, ii) more accurate modelling of the physics of data acquisition and iii) careful accounting for the ultimate purpose of the images. This ultimately results in functional images of the brain with improved resolution and reduced noise, aiding research into brain function and disease.
