Congratulations to Dr. Ruiyang Zhao!

Congratulations to Ruiyang for successfully defending his dissertation titled Development and Validation of Novel Quantitative MRI Techniques in Liver. Ruiyang will be joining GE Healthcare in Houston.

Here are a few of the already published papers based on Ruiyang’s work:
