    Speaker: Xucheng Zhu, University of California, Berkeley

    Talk Title: 3D Free Breathing Pediatric Pulmonary MRI

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: In contrast to PET and CT, MRI delivers no ionizing radiation and within a single imaging session provides a wide range of soft tissue characterization and function. Unfortunately, the innumerable air-tissue interfaces in the lung disrupt the MRI signal, rendering lung tissue invisible on conventional MRI. Furthermore, scans are highly susceptible to respiratory and bulk motion that is widely prevalent in pediatric patient populations. For these reasons, MRI is currently insufficient to provide the prognostic and diagnostic information required of imaging studies. We proposed a novel motion corrected imaging framework, combining with a ultra-short echo time(UTE) acquisition to overcome the existing challenges in pediatric lung MRI.

    Biography: Xucheng Zhu is a 5th year PhD student in the joint UC Berkeley and UCSF Bioengineering program, mentored by Dr. Peder Larson. My PhD thesis focuses on 3D high resolution free breathing lung MRI. I also have experience in PET/MR reconstruction and motion correction, dynamic hyperpolarized 13C MRI, and deep learning based medical image enhancement.

  • Astani Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar

    Thu, Nov 07, 2019 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dr. Tianzhen Hong, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

    Talk Title: Modeling Urban Buildings for Improvement of Efficiency and Resiliency

    Abstract: U.S. cities consume 70% of primary energy, produces 80% of GDP, and are facing challenges of aging infrastructure, impact of climate change and extreme weather events. Urban systems are interconnected systems of buildings, microclimate, transportation, power and water supply. This talk will introduce urban systems research at the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division, focusing on modeling and simulation of urban buildings to improve their energy efficiency and resiliency, leveraging emerging opportunities in big data, artificial intelligence, and exascale computing.

    Biography: Dr. Tianzhen Hong is a Staff Scientist and Deputy Head of the Building Technologies Department of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He leads the Urban Systems Group and a research team working on data analytics, modeling, simulation, and policy for design and operation of low energy buildings and sustainable urban systems. He is an IBPSA Fellow and an editor of the Energy and Buildings journal. He has more than 200 publications. He received B.Eng. and Ph.D. from Tsinghua University, China.
