Clinical Description
Aaron Bertrand Brill, M.D., Ph.D., earned his medical degree from the University of Utah. At the University of California, he completed a fellowship in Nuclear Medicine and Medical Physics and earned his Ph.D. in Biophysics. His research if primarily focused in SPECT, PET, US, and optical imaging as well as radiation epidemiology and radiobiology Dosimetry of internal emitters.
