Francesco is a medical physicist working with the Clinical Imaging Physics Group and Center for Virtual Imaging Trials at Duke University. He received his master's degree in sub-nuclear physics at University of Salento (Lecce, Italy) and his medical physics doctorate at University of Milano (Italy). Francesco's academic work is focused on the evaluation of image quality in vivo in computed tomography providing a comprehensive evaluation of radiological exams and in the investigation of a mathematical model that, uniquely in the radiology field, can incorporate a comprehensive and quantitative risk-to-benefit assessment of the procedures. Furthermore, he is continuing to apply his expertise towards the definition of new patient specific risk metrics and in the assessment of image quality in vivo also using state-of-the-art imaging technology, such as photon counting computed tomography scanners. In his free time, he enjoys running, live music, travelling, and a good glass of wine.
