Dr. Wang is trained as a physicist and an experienced manager. Prior to his appointment at the Advanced Imaging Research Center and the Radiology Department at the UTSW in 2013, Dr. Wang served as a medical imaging scientist at GE Healthcare developing novel imaging techniques for conventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Hyperpolarized nuclear MRI. Dr. Wang has being a certified medical physicist in MRI since 2005 when he worked at the Sunnybrook Health Science Center as the project leader and manager for a MRI guided surgery room project. At UTSW, Dr. Wang develops the clinical applications of Hyperpolarized 13C MR imaging technology and manages the imaging scanner facility.
