Bio sketch and research interests: Dr. Lin received his B.Sc. in Physics from Rikkyo University, Tokyo, Japan in 1969, his M.Sc. in Physics from DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois in 1974, and his Ph.D. in Physics and Biological Sciences from University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan in 1981. Prior to coming to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in 2013, he was on the faculty of Northwestern University Medical School (1973~2003) and Harvard Medical School (2004~2013). Additionally, Dr. Lin was an adjunct professor of radiology at Aichi Medical University, Nagoya, Japan (1999~2003) and a visiting professor of Radiology at Hainan Medical College, Hainan, China (2011~2012). He was the chief diagnostic medical physicist for Northwestern Memorial Hospital (1973~2003) and Children’s Memorial Hospital (2000~2003) in Chicago and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (2004~2013) in Boston. His primary research interests lie in the application of imaging physics to the clinical environment where patient care is affected most, i.e., the clinical application of physics through “image quality assurance”, “acceptance testing” of imaging equipment, and “development of phantoms for various imaging modalities” while trying to “minimize radiation dose” delivered to the patients. His clinical research interests, thus, span over the entire spectrum of imaging equipment in radiology with special interests in cardiovascular angiography equipment and computed tomography scanners. He has strived to maintain an open dialog environment to disseminate various technical information gained from clinical experience with those who are interested in learning and studying together for the advancement of radiological physics in contribution to the society as a whole. In order to accomplish this endeavor, he has organized various symposia over the years, chaired a number of Task Groups, and has been involved in and/or directed the Summer Schools hosted by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
