Physicist, UNAM, Mexico
PhD, Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University
Dr. Maass-Moreno trained in Nuclear Medicine Physics under Drs. Stephen L. Bacharach (NIH) and William J. McIntyre (Cleveland Clinic Foundation). He trained in Cardiovascular Physiology and Control under Drs. Peter G. Katona (Case Western Reserve University) and Carl F. Rothe (Indiana University). His current research interests include quantitative image analysis, motion and attenuation correction, radiation dosimetry and MR/PET imaging.
