Dr. Greg O. Cron received a bachelor’s of science from Xavier University in Ohio (physics and mathematics), followed by a master’s of science and PhD from The University of Wisconsin-Madison (medical physics).  He did post-doctoral fellowships at Carleton University in Ottawa and then L’Université Catholique de Louvain in Brussels.  He returned to Ottawa in 2006 to work for TOH, OHRI and the U of O Preclinical Imaging Core.

Dr. Cron’s research interests involve applications of physics and engineering to biomedicine.  More specifically, he has been involved in the development of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques for detecting and monitoring disease in humans and research animals.  Much of his career has focused on quantifying blood flow in tissues.  More recently, Dr. Cron has developed and executed MRI protocols for a wide variety of research animal models (musculoskeletal, cardiac, lung, kidney, optic nerve, fat composition, tumors, stroke, novel anatomy, etc).
