The Division of Nuclear Medicine strives for excellence in all of the missions of the School of Medicine: patient care, teaching, research, and community service.
The Division of Nuclear Medicine endeavors to provide the highest quality diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures for patient care. The Division consists of four faculty members. Dr. William Klingensmith is board certified in Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology, and is involved in all aspects of the practice of nuclear medicine. Dr. Phil Koo is board certified in Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, and is also involved in all aspects of the practice of nuclear medicine. Dr. Robert Quaife is board certified in Nuclear Medicine and Internal Medicine and focuses on all aspects of cardiac imaging including nuclear cardiology. Dr. Jamal Moloo is board certified in Internal Medicine with additional certification in nuclear and CT imaging of the heart. He specializes in nuclear and CT imaging of the heart.
The Division of Nuclear Medicine participates in the full range of educational activities for residents in radiology, fellows in nuclear radiology, medical students, and other members of the medical community. Education in nuclear medicine is provided through a series of lectures that are given by the nuclear medicine faculty throughout the year and through required and elective rotations on the nuclear medicine clinical service. In addition, nuclear medicine faculty periodically participate in the educational activities of other departments and divisions.
Faculty members in the Division of Nuclear Medicine conduct research in a wide range of areas. This research may be initiated from within Nuclear Medicine or may involve collaboration with entities outside of Nuclear Medicine. Dr. Klingensmith’s research interests include all aspect of nuclear medicine, but are focused on PET radiopharmaceutical development, protocol optimization, and the mathematics of clinical nuclear medicine. Dr Koo's research interests include Nuclear Oncology and PET-CT. Dr Quaif's research interests are all aspects of cardiac imaging. Dr. Moloo’s research interests are focused on cardiovascular prevention and the role of differing imaging modalities for assessing coronary artery disease.
