Biography

Professional Background

Dr. Liu earned both a medical degree (M.D.) and doctorate degree (Ph.D) from Capital University of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China. He worked as clinical neuroradiologist in Beijing Tiantan hospital from 1994 to 2003. He had the training of functional MR image post-processing in Schizophrenia, Cognition & Imaging lab at University of British Columbia. He came to University of Rochester as neuroradiology researcher for advanced neuroimaging techniques, including MR-PWI, -DTI and MRS since 2004.

Research

The advanced imaging techniques, including CT perfusion imaging, MR-PWI, -DTI, MRS and fMRI can provide metabolic and functional information in brain tissues beyond the anatomic changes in conventional images, thus significantly improve the imaging diagnostic accuracy and clinical management in patients with central nerve system diseases. Our current research projects in CNS tumors include multiple modalities in pre-operative imaging diagnosis of tumor and tumor mimic in brain and spinal cord, evaluation of treatment effect in brain tumors, differential diagnosis between progression and pseudoprogression, and functional genetic neuroimaging studies in glioma. Stroke, degenerative disease, and metabolic diseases are also our research interests.
