Dr. Forghani’s expertise is in neuroradiology and head and neck imaging. His research background includes molecular and cell biology, animal models of disease, and the use of smart contrast agents for molecular imaging using MRI. He has a special interest in head and neck cancer, advanced imaging, and texture-radiomic analysis and genome-phenotype correlation. He is currently leading an active research program evaluating applications of dual-energy CT as well as radiomic analysis for the evaluation of head and neck pathology, focusing on head and neck cancer. This includes a prospective study of dual-energy CT for tumor staging and radiogenomic analysis for non-invasive biomarker development. His secondary research interests are in quality reviews, audits, and imaging utilization.
