On November 10, 2017, Prof. Wang Yixiang was invited to give an academic report titled "Biomedical and Magnetic Resonance Physics" at the conference room of Spectrum Building. The report was chaired by Xin Zhou, the deputy director, and the teachers and students of the direction of lung imaging participated.

Yixiang Wang is associate professor of Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Adjunct Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences, Director of Graduate School of Imaging and Interventional Radiology and Supervisor of Medical Imaging Laboratory. His main expertise is skeletal muscle imaging and molecular imaging. He has published more than 100 academic papers and has been quoted for more than 1,400 times. He is the owner of three imaging patents. His current research interests include new technologies in magnetic resonance imaging, Bone and joint spine disease, medical imaging and interventional radiology biomaterials, epidemiology and clinical trials.

The development and application of new MRI technology a hot spot in the field of biomedical imaging. Professor Yixiang Wang introduced the T1rh and T2 relaxation time in the diagnosis of disease classification. In addition, he introduced the various imaging modalities currently used in the diagnosis of liver fibrosis. He believes that for the moment, T1rho is better than magnetic resonance elastography in some areas of research.

Yixiang Wang's easy-to-follow reports led us to understand the diagnostic imaging of liver fibrosis and its problems. After the report, we had a positive communication and discussion.
