Assistant Professor of Radiology
Director of Hollings Cancer Center Small Animal Imaging

Dr. Rosol is Assistant Professor of Radiology and Director of the Small Animal Imaging Facility of the Hollings Cancer Center.

The goal of Dr. Rosol's research is to understand mechanisms of disease through the development and application of multiple imaging modalities. He has 15 years of experience in medical imaging. His training and experience are in the fields of biophysics, physiology and biological/medical imaging, and his past research prior to coming to MUSC focused on cardiovascular imaging (micro- and "macro-" computed tomography), image reconstruction as applied to muscle physiology and animal models of cancer and stem cell biology.

Dr. Rosol's immediately previous position was Assistant Professor of Research Radiology at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and the University of Southern California (USC), where he was Director of the CHLA Small Animal Imaging Research Center. During graduate school he worked in breast imaging research at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) while also completing a PhD involving 3-dimensional reconstruction of electron micrograph images of muscle thin filaments at the Boston University School of Medicine. He then completed post-doctoral fellowships in macro- and micro-CT at MGH/Harvard Medical School and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. While at CHLA and USC he expanded his knowledge base and worked with a suite of imaging modalities and techniques. These include bioluminescent and fluorescent imaging, micro-MRI, micro-CT, micro-CT/SPECT, and high resolution screen film x-ray. During this time he also expanded his research base to include brain tumor, in vivo cell tracking and imaging of microvessels in normal and diseased organs.

Dr. Rosol is a member of the Society of Molecular Imaging and has been an ad hoc reviewer for the National Institute of Health Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering Study Section. At MUSC Dr. Rosol will work to develop and grow a state-of-the-art small animal imaging facility as well as foster his own collaborative research.
