Daehyun Yoon, PhD, is an assistant adjunct professor in the Body Imaging Research Group. He joined UCSF in 2023 from the Stanford Radiological Sciences Laboratory, where he worked on PET and MRI to improve the visualization and characterization of peripheral nerve pain generators.
His research interest is in the development of PET/MRI and MRI methods for identifying peripheral pain generators in the musculoskeletal system. His recent projects include PET/MRI of various chronic pain conditions (low back pain, complex regional pain syndrome, CSF leak, etc.), high-resolution/quantitative MRI of peripheral nerves, and artifact-free MRI near metallic implants.
