Dr. Huiming Dong was originally from Shanghai. He completed a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering with Cum Laude at Northeastern University and at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), the Netherlands before receiving his PhD in MR imaging from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center where he worked closely with vascular surgeons, radiologists and MR scientists to investigate novel MR elastography techniques for quantifying abdominal aortic aneurysm stiffness in patients to improve management risk stratification. He received two Magna Cum Laude Merit Awards from the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). During his training at UCSF Radiology, he primarily focused on evaluating vascular/aneurysmal diseases in veterans using MRI at San Francisco VA, and received a Siemens seed grant to investigate ferumoxytol MRI at 0.55T in AVF patients. Dr. Dong is excited to join UCLA Radiation Oncology as a medical physics resident. He is passionate about patient care and exploring how his research in MR imaging could further improve radiation therapy to benefit more cancer patients as a clinician scientist.
