Kiho Im, PhD
Dr. Im received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Hanyang University in Korea, where he investigated sulcal folding patterns, shape, and variability using a surface-based method in adult brains. At the FNNDSC, he has been focusing on the more challenging problem of characterizing sulcal pattern development in fetal brains. He hopes that his analysis tool development will ultimately provide innovative imaging markers for monitoring brain health and development unlike any that have previously been developed.
His research interests include:
- Quantitative sulcal pattern analysis of the human cortical surface
- Development of imaging features for normal and abnormal cortical development
- Brain MR image processing and statistical/mathematical analysis
