Development of imaging techniques for vascular disorders diagnosis

Dr Jung Sun YOO

Email: jungsun.yoo@polyu.edu.hk


Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of global deaths. Dr. Yoo's group focuses on developing novel molecular imaging techniques for multimodality imaging with optical and nuclear medicine imaging modalities. Current projects include atherosclerosis and myocardial infraction imaging techniques by targeting inflammation and angiogenesis for effective risk stratification of patients.
