biography :: conference marerials
Bill Overall received his BSE degree in biomedical and electrical engineering from Duke University in 1996. He went on to a PhD degree in electrical engineering at Stanford, developing novel acquisition techniques for efficient contrast manipulation in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. He has multiple patents pending for steady-state contrast manipulation techniques using MRI, including one method that can acquire high-quality MR angiograms without the injection of any contrast agent. Mr. Overall also co-invented a novel computer input device using ultrasound techniques, and has developed laser and polarimetry technology for an early stage start-up dedicated to providing hyperpolarized gases for use in high-resolution lung imaging. Dr. Overall is a research associate in the Electrical Engineering Department's Information Systems Laboratory.
