This program targets radiographers and healthcare professionals who are interested to know more about the research initiatives carried out in The Clinical Imaging Research Centre (CIRC).
This is also to create awareness and spark research interest in clinical imaging. The topics of the program will include an introduction of CIRC and an overview of the ongoing research initiatives in MR and PET imaging.
Dr. John Totman
Dr. John Totman is Deputy Director at the Clinical Imaging Research Centre (CIRC) and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore. He received his Masters degree in Magnetic Resonance Technology from University of Queensland, and his PhD in Physics at the Sir Peter Mansfield MR Center at University of Nottingham. Dr Totman started working in medical imaging in 1986 and has specialised in MRI since 1994. He has helped establish or install MRI at 6 different centers, and his experience in MRI crosses most clinical MRI vendors, magnetic field strengths and areas of clinical MRI research.
Dr. Mary Stephenson
Group Leader of MR Research
Throughout her PhD and Post-Doc at the University of Nottingham, Dr Mary Stephenson specialised in investigating pathways for human metabolism using in vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). Her main research interests lie in using multi-nuclear MRS, particularly 1H, 13C and 31P nuclei, in combination with other MRI techniques (ASL, fMRI, T2*mapping and DTI), to gain further insight into healthy human metabolism, as well as to understand how metabolism is perturbed in pathologies including diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, myopathies, psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases.
Dr. Anthonin Reilhac-Laborde
Research Associate Professor
During his PhD studies, carried out at the McConnell Brain Imaging centre (Montreal, Canada) and at the CERMEP (Lyon, France), Anthonin developed a Monte Carlo-based PET simulator. This research provided him with advanced training and expertise in basic PET physics, instrumentation and data processing. Starting in 2004, Anthonin became a permanent research engineer at the CNRS in France. Anthonin joined Biospective Inc. (Montreal, Canada) in 2009 as PET Research Scientist. In 2011, he joined ANSTO LifeSciences (Australia) where he lead the imaging group (PET, SPECT and CT). He joined the INSERM in France in 2015 to develop processing tools for the first PET-MR scanner installed in France. He finally joined CIRC in January 2017 first as a Senior Principle Investigator and then as research associate Professor to initiate and lead a methodological team dedicated to PET-MR data processing.
