Research Associate Professor, Radiology

Baojun Li
85 E. Concord St


Baojun Li, Ph.D., received his Ph.D. from the Univ. of Iowa in 2004 (Advisors: Prof. Joe Reinhardt, Prof. Gary Christensen). His dissertation was on 3D Registration and Warping of Pulmonary CT for Lung Atlas and Radiation Treatment Planning. From 2002 to 2009, he worked at GE Healthcare in the Applied Science Lab as a Senior Scientist, where he was heavily involved in the research and development of Radiographic Tomosynthesis, Low-dose CT, and Dual-energy CT, which led to three commercial products and multiple awards. His current interests include CT clinical protocol optimization, dual-energy CT, and MR/CT/US texture analysis for automatic liver fibrosis staging. Baojun has authored more than 100 publications and 23 issued patents. Baojun currently serves as an Associate Editor for for Medical Physics Journal and OMICS Journal of Radiology, and a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on Biomed Eng., Academic Radiology, International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery, Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, Physica Medica, Journal of X-ray Science and Technology, Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine. He is an active member of American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), having served on several committees and task groups.
