Hyoung K. Lee
Missouri University of Science and Technology
Dr. Hyoung K. Lee is Associate Professor and Chair of Nuclear Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. Dr. Lee has his expertise in radiation detection and imaging. He has worked in teaching hospitals as a medical physicist and has also been a faculty member in academia since receiving his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley. His research area includes radiation detector design and characterization, advanced radiation sources, advanced imaging systems using x-ray, gamma ray or neutron, algorithms for CT reconstruction, image processing, image analysis, and application of deep learning for medical imaging. He has successfully conducted many research projects that covered a wide spectrum of radiation detection and imaging technologies, from development of radiation detectors to development of image enhancement algorithms (some of which were transferred to industry). His current research includes development of flat-panel x-ray sources, compact x-ray tubes for stationary cardiac CT and switchable radioisotopes for imaging and other applications. He has published more than one-hundred forty peer-reviewed publications and edited a book chapter in his field of research. He has also given twenty-five invited lectures and one-hundred and nine abstracted talks.
