Ingrid Reiser, PhD

Dr. Reiser is a clinical Medical Physicist and Associate Professor of Radiology and the Committee on Medical Physics. She is board-certified in diagnostic medical physics. Her research interests focus on x-ray imaging physics, image quality assessment and image perception, and particularly on the objective assessment of imaging systems through task performance metrics. Research projects include the development and validation of model observers, and the development of realistic, anthropomorphic phantoms, with application to breast tomosynthesis, general radiography and fluoroscopy.
