Dr. Scott Nagle is a member of the Cardiovascular and Thoracic Imaging Sections of the Department of Radiology. He joined the faculty in 2009 after having completed his residency at Stanford and an MRI Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Dr. Nagle completed his PhD in Medical Physics at the University of Chicago, where his thesis work involved optimizing data-sampling strategies for MRI in order to shorten imaging time. He now focuses his research on translational pulmonary MRI, focussing in particular on proton-based methods of imaging lung structure and function using ultrashort echo time and dynamic contrast-enhanced perfusion methods. Cystic fibrosis and pulmonary embolism are two of the primary clinical settings to which he has applied these techniques. Since 2011, Dr. Nagle has been Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations Center for Diagnostic Imaging.
