Geneva University Hospital
Dr. Habib Zaidi is senior physicist and head of the PET Instrumentation & Neuroimaging Laboratory at Geneva University Hospital. He received a Ph.D. in medical physics from GenevaUniversity for a dissertation on Monte Carlo modelling and scatter correction in positron emission tomography. His academic accomplishments in the area of quantitative PET imaging have been well recognized by the Medical School of Geneva University, which elected him to become faculty member as Privat-Docent. Dr. Zaidi is actively involved in developing imaging solutions for cutting-edge biomedical research and clinical diagnosis in addition to lecturing graduate and postgraduate courses on medical physics and medical imaging. His research centre on modelling nuclear medical imaging systems using the Monte Carlo method, dosimetry, image correction, reconstruction and quantification techniques in emission tomography as well as statistical image analysis in functional brain imaging, and more recently on novel design of dedicated high-resolution PET scanners in collaboration within the Computed Imaging for Medical Applications (CIMA) collaboration hosted by CERN.
