Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Noël’s primary research interests currently include spectral imaging with photon-counting detectors, advanced x-ray tube concepts, phase-contrast & darkfield imaging, reconstruction approaches, and the clinical translation of advanced technologies. His work has found application in oncology, pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis screening. Dr. Noël’s publication record not only includes more than 175 peer-reviewed publications in international journals but also a patent portfolio in the areas of x-ray and CT imaging. He has been named to the editorial board of European Radiology for the medical physics section and is member of both national and international scientific organizations.

Undergraduates and master's students, as well as prospective graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to email Dr. Noël if interested in working in the Laboratory for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging.
