Research Summary:

Dr. Hintenlang’s research focuses on developing and characterizing clinical medical physics applications of radiation imaging and dosimetry. His lab has developed techniques to accurately quantify and minimize pediatric, computed tomography (CT) and mammography doses and optimization of image quality. Research areas include image quality, tomographic phantom design and development for radiation dosimetry, and applications of non-ionizing radiation in biomedical engineering.
