Nima Kasraie, Ph.D., M.S., is an Associate Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and a member of its Medical Physics division.
Dr. Kasraie earned a bachelor's degree in physics from Arkansas State University, and received a master's degree in nuclear and radiological engineering from the University of Tennessee. He then obtained a doctral degree in medical physics from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio before a postdcotral stint in biomedical physics at California State University in Fresno.
He holds certificates in nuclear and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging from the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) at The Royal Marsden Hospital in the United Kingdom, and in advanced magnetic resonance spectroscopy from the Institute for Biomedical Engineering at ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Kasraie is also board certified in nuclear medicine physics and instrumentation by the American Board of Science in Nuclear Medicine (ABSNM), and in diagostic radiology physics by the American Board of Radiology (ABR).
Prior to joining the UT Southwestern faculty in 2019, Dr. Kasraie served as Associate Professor of Radiology at the University of Missouri in Kansas City Department of Radiology. He also served for six years as the first full-time medical physicist at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City.
Dr. Kasraie is an active (committee) member of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), American College of Radiology (ACR), and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).
