Biography

Dr. Joseph Barfett completed degrees in chemical engineering and medicine at Western University in 2006. He completed residency training in diagnostic radiology in 2012 and nuclear medicine in 2014 at the University of Toronto. Dr. Barfett also graduated with a MSc in image processing from the University of Toronto in 2013. His research focuses on many aspects of medical image processing particularly in functional CT and PET/SPECT image processing, as well as radiobiology and radiation protection. Dr. Barfett supports many projects in the city and is involved in commercialization projects through MaRS.
