Research and Academic Interests

Our laboratory develops and validates next-generation magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies for diagnosing human disease. Our work ranges from the conception and development of altogether new MRI acquisition, reconstruction and image analysis methods, to the validation of these innovative approaches through research studies. The ultimate aim of our research is to translate new technologies from the “bench to the bedside” to improve patient care.

Recent efforts have included the development of highly sensitive and quantitative methods for imaging of cerebrovascular disease and cancer, as well as the use of machine learning methods to shorten scan times, improve image quality and boost diagnostic accuracy.

Career Summary

Ioannis Koktzoglou, PhD is a Research Scientist at NorthShore University HealthSystem Research Institute and a Senior Clinician Researcher at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine.  He received his undergraduate degree in engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as well as his Master's and Doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University. At Northwestern, he developed state-of-the-art 3-dimensional MRI techniques for evaluating arterial disease (i.e., atherosclerosis).  At NorthShore, he has developed many MRI technologies for improved imaging of vascular disease and cancer. One of these methods has become commercially available to improve patient care throughout the world.  Dr. Koktzoglou has served as principal investigator and co-investigator on projects supported by the National Institutes of Health and American Heart Association, authored or co-authored over 75 peer-reviewed scientific journal publications in leading journals such as Science Advances, Radiology, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, and Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, delivered or contributed to over 170 presentations at international scientific meetings, and holds 17 patents.
