Sung-Min Sohn, PhD, Assistant Professor
Department of Radiology
University of Minnesota and faculty candidate, will present.
Abstract: Dr. Sohn will present his research topics to overcome technical barriers to increase the accessibility of
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and improve the quality of MR imaging for next-generation MRI that realizes
miniaturization, lightweight, low cost, and safety. Most of his researches are related to the oscillating field (B1) of
RF coils (antennas in MRI) and interface circuits between RF coils and RF signal chains of transmit (Tx) and
receive (Rx). Especially, he will focus on the development of RF/mixed-signal circuits for simultaneous transmit
and receive (STAR) and automatic correction systems of frequency tuning, impedance matching, and RF coupling.
His research results show the ultra-low RF peak power capability and replacement of manual adjustments to obtain
human head MR images.
