Baojun Li, PhD
Research Associate Professor
Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine

PhD, University of Iowa
MS, Nanjing University
BS, Nanjing University

Baojun Li received his Ph.D. from The University of Iowa in 2004 (Advisors: Prof. Joe Reinhardt, Prof. Gary Christensen). His dissertation was on 3D Nonlinear Image Registration and Warping of Pulmonary CT for Lung Atlas and Radiation Treatment Planning. From 2002 to 2009, he worked as a Senior Scientist at GE Healthcare's Applied Science Lab, where he was awarded multiple GE Management Awards for his contributions to the development of Radiographic Tomosynthesis, Low-dose CT (aka. ASiR), and Dual-energy CT (aka. Gem Stone Imaging). Baojun currently serves as an Associate Editor for for Medical Physics Journal and OMICS Journal of Radiology, and a manuscript reviewer for IEEE TMI, IEEE TBE, European Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), Academic Radiology, etc. He has served on several national committees of American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and American Board of Radiology (ABR), and is the liaison between AAPM and the Society of Cardiac CT (SCCT). Baojun was elected a Fellow of AAPM in 2022. Baojun has authored more than 100 publications and 23 issued patents. He is a frequent lecturer nationally on CT technology.
