Dr. Guang Yang (B.Eng, M.Sc., Ph.D., M.IEEE, M.ISMRM, M.SPIE) obtained his M.Sc. in Vision Imaging and Virtual Environments from the Department of Computer Science in 2006 and his Ph.D. on medical image analysis jointly from the CMICDepartment of Computer Science and Medical Physics in 2012 both from University College London.

He is currently an honorary lecturer with the Neuroscience Research Centre, Cardiovascular and Cell Sciences Institute, St. George’s, University of London. He is also an image processing physicist and honorary senior research fellow working at Cardiovascular Research Centre, Royal Brompton Hospital and also affiliate with National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London.

He has worked for Siemens Medical Solutions and Medicsight PLC before, and obtained comprehensive industrial experiences. He leads two international patent applications in pending in the fields of medical image processing. His research collaborators are from Imperial College London, St. George’s, University of London, University of Lincoln, City University London, University College London, Fudan University, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China. 

He has participated in many medical image analysis projects including: breast tumour image analysis using digital breast tomosynthesis (funded by Department of Trade and Industry and EPSRC); colon cancer computer aided diagnosis and detection using CT imaging (funded by TSB); multimodal advanced MRI analysis for brain tumour grading, classification, growth modelling and therapy planning (funded by CRUK).

At National Heart and Lung Institute, he was working on a cardiac MRI project funded by NIHR. Recently, he proposed a novel workflow to achieve fast acquisition, superior image quality and quantitative analysis for the late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) MRI images, which could help diagnosis, treatment planning and prognosis of atrial fibrillation patients. For this proposal, Dr. Guang Yang (Co-I) has been awarded a British Heart Foundation project grant together with Dr. Jennifer Keegan (PI), Prof. David Firmin (Co-I), Prof. Raad Mohiaddin (Co-I), and Dr. Tom Wong (Co-I).
