Taehoon Shin Ph.D.

Academic Title: Assistant Professor
Primary Appointment: Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine
Location: Paca & Pratt Building, 2-S-117
Phone: 410-328-0347
Cell: 213-281-2743

Personal History:

Dr. Shin received his BS and MS in mechanical engineering at Seoul National University, South Korea, and MS and PhD in electrical engineering at University of Southern California. After postdoctoral training at Stanford University, he joined the Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, University of Maryland in 2013. Dr Shin's research has focused on novel MRI pulse sequence design and image reconstruction for cardiovascular applications. Specific research topics include 3D first-pass myocardial perfusion MRI, 3D late gadolinium enhancement MRI, non-contrast-enhanced MR angiography, image reconstruction from under-sampled MR data, and multi-dimensional RF excitation.

Research Interests:

Development of novel MRI acquisition and reconstruction methods for:

  • 3D First-pass myocardial perfusion MRI
  • 3D late gadolinium enhancement MRI
  • Non-contrast-enhanced MR angiography

Lab Techniques and Equipment:

  • 1.5T and 3T human MRI scanners (Siemens, GE)
  • 7T animal MRI scanner (Brukers)
