    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Kim is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF. His research interests fall in the fields of MR-guided focused ultrasound, quantitative MRI, transcranial focused ultrasound, and thermal treatments such as thermal ablation and hyperthermia.

    Dr. Kim's research falls under two themes: 1) advancing MRI methods relevant to MR-guided focused ultrasound through the development of MRI methods, imaging processing, and optimizing the reconstruction pipeline. 2) developing sophisticated sonication strategies for drug delivery and volumetric thermal therapy, and effectively applying these methods to the existing or new focused ultrasound system.

    Through a multidisciplinary approach, he continues to push the frontiers of MR-guided focused ultrasound, advancing the method for improved patient outcomes.

    Currently, he is the NIDCR K99 awardee (2023-2025) and Trainee Representative of the Interventional MR Study Group in the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (2024-2025).

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
