About the Authors

Dilber Ozsahin

Dilber Uzun Ozsahin graduated from the Department of the Physics of Çukurova University in 2006. She has worked at CERN, Geneva, during 2008-2010 for her Master thesis. She completed her Ph.D. studies in 2014 in Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain. In 2015, she started to work at Gordon Center for Medical Imaging, NMMI Radiology Department, Massachusetts General Hospital & Harvard Medical School as a post-doc. She has worked a new technique called laser-induced optical barriers (LIOB) technique to improve nuclear medicine imaging devises cost and performance. She has cost-effectively designed high-performance cardiac SPECT systems using the LIOB technique. She is currently working on Multi-Criteria Decision Techniques on Healthcare and Biomedical Engineering at Near East University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Biomedical Engineering as an Assoc. Prof. Dr.

Ilker Ozsahin

Ilker Ozsahin has extensive experience in medical imaging devices including modelling, simulation and image reconstruction such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Positron Emission Mammography (PEM), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), and Compton Camera (CC). After obtaining his PhD, he was awarded the International Postdoctoral Research Scholarship from The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) for Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital for one year and then was supported by Harvard for his further postdoctoral studies. During his two years, he worked on new generation gamma camera and developing imaging algorithms. Furthermore, he is working on the effects of general anaesthesia on the brain function of small animals with a novel functional imaging paradigm, as well as understanding the mechanism of general anaesthesia which is one of the biggest mysteries of modern medicine. He is also working on a novel motion correction technique for patients undergoing PET scans.
