Biography

Professional Background

Dr. Ruola Ning is a Professor of Imaging Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester. He received his BS degree in electronic physics from Zhongshan University, China, in 1982, a MS degree in electrical engineering in 1986, and a PhD degree in electrical engineering in 1989 from the University of Utah. He is a member of SPIE, and AAPM. Since 1989, he has been on the faculty of the University of Rochester. He is an ABR-certified medical physicist and is the author of more than 120 refereed journal articles and proceedings. He is also the inventor of fourteen issued US patents.
Dr. Ruola Ning is the Director of the Cone Beam CT Imaging Lab. Currently his research interests include the development of cone beam CT technology, cone beam CT breast imaging, x-ray phase contrast imaging, cone beam CT angiography imaging, 3-D and 4-D medical imaging, and computer-aided detection and diagnosis. He also collaborates on a project of cone beam CT-based evaluation of bone cancer treatment using allografting.
