Dr. Ozkan Doganay is a medical physicist working with radiologists, lung physiologists, physicists and engineers to develop functional imaging techniques for early detection and quantification of lung diseases. Dr. Doganay pursued undergraduate studies in Physics at Ege University. Moving to Canada in 2007, he completed his MSc in the Department of Biomedical Physics at Ryerson University. He received his Ph.D. in the Department of Medical Biophysics from the University of Western Ontario in 2015, where he earned a national cancer-research-training award (CIHR in CaRTT). He went on to work as a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Oncology at the University of Oxford in 2015. His research focused on the development of specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods for detection of functional (i.e. gas exchange) abnormalities in lungs associated with thoracic radiation treatment of cancer and lung ventilation disorders including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Deceases (COPD) and asthma. He is currently an Assistant Prof at Ege University in the Institute of Health Sciences. He builds a new laboratory, named Functional Lung Imaging laboratories at Ege University Hospital Respiratory Diseases Center (EGE-SAM) and develops novel hyperpolarized xenon MR imaging techniques.
His research interests:
Development of rapid and functional MR image acquisition techniques, Design of RF coils for both proton and non-proton MRI, Design of Xenon-129 polarizers, Post-processing and modeling of MR images, Quantification of lung gas exchange and ventilation including SPECT, CT, and Hyperpolarized MRI for diagnosis of lung diseases including COPD, Asthma, COVID-19. His lab is Wellcome to graduate and undergraduate students and postdocs from various disciplines.
