Research Description
Allen Newton, Ph.D., is a biomedical engineer with a broad background in imaging science and specific expertise in magnetic resonance imaging and image/signal analysis. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University and joined the Vanderbilt faculty in 2016 as Research Assistant Professor pursuing novel imaging strategies for pediatric and functional neuroimaging. Dr. Newton runs the pediatric clinical fMRI program for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and advises the clinical community on advanced MRI. His research interests span a wide range of fields including decreasing the need for sedation in pediatric MRI, decreasing radiation exposure in children by facilitating modality shift from CT to MRI, the use of imaging in 3D printing, utilizing ultra-high field MRI in pediatrics, perfusion imaging, functional MRI, image guidance for surgery, and MR histology. In general, Dr. Newton is interested in doing new things never done before, and doing simple things better.
