Dr. Ali Sadeghi-Naini
Sadeghi-Naini is a scientist in the Odette Cancer Research Program at SRI. His research focuses on using multimodal imaging techniques to improve cancer detection, characterization and treatment. Working with Dr. Gregory Czarnota he pioneered the use of quantitative ultrasound (QUS) to measure treatment response in patients with breast cancer. Quantitative ultrasound combines high-frequency ultrasound with image analysis software to identify dead cells based on their distinct shape. Conventional methods require months to determine whether a treatment is working. Sadeghi-Naini has optimized QUS methods to know how well a tumour is responding to treatment within seven to 10 days. He and Czarnota are also developing and testing an automated 3-D QUS system to characterize breast tumours and monitor treatment response.
