Brain Molecular Imaging

Research axis:

  • Quantification in PET imaging, especially motion correction, partial volume correction
  • Pharmacokinetic modeling

Scientific expertise:

  • PET/CT imaging


  • I obtained my PhD in 2007 at the Medical Image Processing Laboratory (U650 INSERM), University of Brest, France. After this degree, I worked as a Research Associate at the Hammersmith hospital of the Imperial College of London. I have spent the majority of my scientific activity in the field of PET imaging. My current research interests focus on improvement of PET/CT image quantitation for both oncology and neurology applications, through the development of methodologies for detection and correction of respiratory motion, partial volume correction and pharmacokinetic modeling. As a research engineer in France, I currently have joint appointment between the department of nuclear medicine and the research PET center of the university hospital of Bordeaux. I am responsible for a research program aiming at: (i) developing pharmacokinetic models for research protocols used in our research PET center, and (ii) improving quantification of PET images (correction of artifacts related to physical and physiological movements of the patient) and the fusion of PET images with complementary modalities (MRI, CT) to aid in diagnosis.
