NERS Colloquium: Medical Imaging Advances: Do All Bell-and-Whistle Options Impact Patient Care?

Speaker: Timothy Szczykutowicz, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Medical Physics

Speaker: Timothy Szczykutowicz
Learn about the development of Computed Tomography from its inception in the early 1970s to the present; the medical applications of CT (e.g., diagnostic radiology, radiation oncology, and interventional CBCT); and the current state of how CT improvements are driven. The theme of the discussion will be to highlight the key technological advances that increased the value of CT in medicine. Examples of advancements with unquestionable benefit to patient care and other “advancements” with motivation rooted in unwarranted fear over radiation dose will be covered. This discussion will be presented in a manner suitable for the non-medical imaging expert to convey the larger themes related to technology advancement in the space of medical imaging.


Speaker: Timothy Szczykutowicz, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Medical Physics

Dr. Szczykutowicz is an assistant professor in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Departments of Radiology, Medical Physics, and Biomedical Engineering. He received his Bachelors of Science in Physics from the SUNY University at Buffalo in 2008. He was active in medical physics at Buffalo in the laboratory of Dr. Stephen Rudin with the Toshiba Stroke Research Center, working on vessel sizing and detector performance characterization. After his undergraduate studies, Dr. Szczykutowicz came to the University of Wisconsin–Madison where he earned his Masters and PhD in Medical Physics, receiving mentorship from Doctors Charles 'Chuck' Mistretta and Guang-Hong Chen. His dissertation was on fluence field modulated CT, a promising x-ray imaging technique that allows for imaging dose to be tailored to individuals. After his dissertation work, Dr. Szczykutowicz spent a year as a doctrinal fellow and imaging physics resident with the Department of Medical Physics at the UW before being appointed as a clinical health sciences Assistant Professor. The clinical and research activities of Dr. Szczykutowicz include: optimizing CT scan protocols, monitoring patient dose, developing new metrics to define image quality in the clinical setting, developing protocol management methodologies, fluence field modulated CT, dual energy CT, and assisting in various projects related to cone beam CT.
