    Eugene Ozhinsky, PhD is a specialist at the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California San Francisco.

    His main research interests are in the areas of machine learning for musculoskeletal imaging and MR-guided focused ultrasound therapy. He is working in the laboratory of Dr. Sharmila Majumdar on development and implementation of machine learning techniques for automated image processing, analysis, and prescription of musculoskeletal X-ray, MRI, PET, and CT images.

    As a PI of an NIBIB Trailblazer R21 grant, Dr. Ozhinsky is leading the development of MR thermometry and ultrasound beamforming techniques for targeted hyperthermia treatments. In collaboration with Dr. Chris Diederich (dept. of Radiation Oncology) he is working on development of MR monitoring techniques for focused ultrasound treatment of pancreatic cancer.

    Dr. Ozhinsky has obtained his PhD in the UC Berkeley/UCSF Joint Graduate Program in Bioengineering. His dissertation work was on automated acquisition of brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy data.
