Position title: Principle Investigator
Martin G. Wagner, Dr. sc. hum. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Wisconsin. He received his diploma in computer science (bachelors and masters) with distinction from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg with a focus on machine learning and medical image analysis. Later he earned his doctorate in neuroradiology (medical physics) magna cum laude from the University of Heidelberg, Germany. He has been a University of Wisconsin staff member since 2013, where he focused on developing advanced imaging techniques for 3-dimensional interventional device guidance including guidewires, catheters, and prosthetic heart valves for minimally invasive procedures. His research interests include multimodality imaging (x-ray, CT, ultrasound, MRI) and image fusion techniques, quantitative imaging, and machine learning. Most recently he has also been involved in developing targeting techniques for Histotripsy, a novel non-invasive, non-thermal, and non-ionizing technology for tissue destruction and tumor treatment. His work has resulted in over 50 scientific publications and presentations, 8 inventions/patents, as well as federal and industrial grant support.
