Sung-Cheng（Henry）Huang，Distinguished Research Professor at UCLA Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology and Department of Biomathematics, and President of Datasch.com that provides image analysis and quantification services. He is a pioneer in the development of positron emission tomography (PET) of its present form in a team led by Dr. Michael E. Phelps. He is also a leading authority on the quantification of functional biomedical image. He has developed many methods used in PET for quantitating biological functions in vivo in regional tissues, including the modeling of the physical aspects of the PET imaging and the biological/biochemical modeling of the kinetics of PET tracers. He is especially recognized for developing the kinetic tissue model of FDG, the most commonly used PET imaging tracer today, and for its use to quantify glucose utilization rate non-invasively in the brain and in myocardium. He is an IEEE Fellow and a recipient of the Benedict Cassen Prize from the Society of Nuclear Medicine. He has over 350 journal publications and is a reviewer or on the boards of directors of a number of prestigious journals in nuclear medicine and biological imaging.
