Alberto Del Guerra received the degree in physics from the University of Pisa in 1968. He has been Full Professor of Physics at the University of Napoli in 1987-1991, and Full Professor of Medical Physics at the University of Ferrara in 1992-1997. Since 1998 he is Full Professor of Medical Physics at the University of Pisa, Head and Director of the Specialty School of Medical Physics, and Head of a research group in Medical Physics (Functional Imaging Instrumentation Group) at the Department of Physics. He is author/co-author of more than 300 publications. He has been President of the European Federation of Organization of Medical Physics (EFOMP) from 2004 to 2007.

Research Interests

The major research activities of the group are devoted to the development and application of advanced detector and simulation technologies to the field of diagnostic imaging in PET, CT and MRI. Specific items of research are:

  • Molecular Imaging with PET and SPECT (preclinical and clinical)
  • High resolution CT scanner (preclinical)
  • Functional Imaging in Breast Cancer (PEM and SPEM)
  • Image reconstruction (2-D and 3-D) in medical imaging
  • MRI, fMRI and UHF(7T)MRI
