Biography

Paul Kinahan is a member of the UW Imaging Research Laboratory. He was part of the group that built the first prototype combined PET/CT scanner and has also contributed to the current class of data processing image reconstruction algorithms used in PET/CT oncology imaging. He moved to the University of Washington in 2001 where he continues his research in PET/CT imaging. He has served on committees for the RSNA, AAPM, SNM, NIH, and IEEE.
