Jie Deng, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology’s Division of Medical Physics & Engineering.
Prior to joining UT Southwestern, Dr. Deng was an Associate Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at Northwestern University and Rush University Medical Center. She is a certified magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) medical physicist by the American Board of Medical Physics.
Dr. Deng received her Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Northwestern University. She also received her Master of Science in Law degree from Northwestern Pritzker Law School.
Dr. Deng has extensive clinical and research experience in MRI physics, quantitative MRI, oncological imaging, imaging processing, and AI applications in medical imaging. Specifically, she has been continuously working on clinical implementation, development, and improvement of advanced MRI technologies in tissue characterization, functional MRI for therapeutic response evaluation, AI-assisted disease diagnosis, and image quality improvement.
