Dr. Goldberg-Zimring is a member of the Surgical Planning Laboratory (SPL) in the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a member of the Computational Radiology Laboratory (CRL) in the Department of Radiology at Children's Hospital Boston, and an Assistant Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School.
His research in the field of medical image analysis has focused in the implementation of computerized algorithms for studying anatomical structures and disease markers. He has developed innovative contributions in the domain of quantitative segmentation of multiple sclerosis lesions from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and applied spherical harmonics for the characterization of the 3D geometry of multiple sclerosis lesions and their changes in shape over time. Currently he is involved in a research project to develop new techniques for the construction of white matter fiber tract atlases from diffusion tensor and structural MRI, which will enable the identification of white matter fiber tracts disrupted by multiple sclerosis lesions.
Dr. Goldberg-Zimring joined the CRL as a postdoctoral fellow in June 2002, after completing his M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies in Biomedical Engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. He obtained his B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, campus Iztapalapa in Mexico City.
