Medical Physicists (Medical Imaging)
Dr. Ian Cameron is a Senior Medical Physicist in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at The Ottawa Hospital and an Assistant Professor in the Radiology Department at the University of Ottawa. He joined DI in 1989 after completing 3 years as a Visiting Fellow in a Canadian Research Laboratory at the National Research Council of Canada. Prior to that, he graduated from the University of Waterloo with his PhD in Physics. He was accepted as a Fellow of the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine in 2005. He currently has 28 published or accepted papers in peer-reviewed journals and 68 conference presentations. Dr. Cameron is an Adjunct Research Professor in the Physics Department at Carleton University. Under his supervision, 5 students have completed their PhD and 3 have completed their MSc in Medical Physics at Carleton University.
Dr. Cameron completed his PhD in solid state NMR in 1986 and transferred to MRI in 1989. His research interests cover many areas of MRI including diffusion weighted MRI, dynamic contrast enhanced MRI, quantitative MRI, functional brain MRI, Ultrashort TE imaging, T1ρ MRI and IntraVoxel Incoherent Motion (IVIM), among other topics.
Greg O. Cron was born in Columbus, Ohio, USA. He received a B.Sc. in physics and mathematics from Xavier University, Cincinnati Ohio in 1993. He went on to earn his M.Sc. (1995) and Ph.D. (2000) in medical physics from The University of Wisconsin – Madison. Dr. Cron worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Carleton University in Canada (2001-2003) and The Catholic University of Louvain in Brussels, Belgium (2004-2005). Following that, he moved back to Ottawa for a position as Senior Clinical Research Associate at The Ottawa Hospital (2006-present). In 2011 Dr. Cron became an assistant professor at the University of Ottawa, department of Biochemistry Microbiology and Immunology. His main research interests are in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, with special emphasis on the development of techniques for measuring blood flow (perfusion) quantitatively, primarily for cancer research.
