Scott Reeder

Credentials: MD, PhD

Position title: John H. Juhl Professor and Chair of Radiology


I am the Director of the UW Liver Imaging Research Program, an active NIH-funded group that performs research in technical development and translation of new imaging methods, particularly quantitative imaging biomarkers, to assess liver disease. Specific areas of research interests include development of new MRI methods for quantification of abdominal adiposity, liver fat, liver iron overload and other features of diffuse liver disease, quantification of perfusion in liver tumors, hemodynamics of portal hypertension and the use of new contrast agents in liver and biliary diseases. Since many of these abdominal diseases are highly prevalent in those with obesity, diabetes and other metabolic diseases, my research program is significantly relevant to the mission of the Wisconsin Diabetes Research Center.
