Krishnendu Saha received a PhD in Nuclear Engineering with a concentration in Medical Physics from the Nuclear Science and Engineering Institute, University of Missouri-Columbia in May, 2007. During his PhD program he did an internship in a Nuclear Cardiology laboratory as a quantitative nuclear cardiac imaging researcher for PET imaging. After completing his education, Krishnendu worked as an Imaging Physicist, in the area of absolute quantitative techniques for Myocardial Blood Flow imaging in Rb-82 and N-13 Ammonia PET. His duties included maintaining the quality control program for nuclear cameras in a busy clinical environment. In addition, he has also validated cameras in about 40 clinical sites for brain PET imaging and done quantitative analysis of brain PET images for diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Dementia with Lewy Body disease. As a researcher in academia, he improved the image quality of x-ray and PET imaging in the tomographic breast-imaging laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Department of Radiology.
