Zang-Hee Cho, UC Irvine professor of radiological sciences, has been elected as a foreign associate to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.

Foreign associates at the institute are scientists who are citizens of foreign countries.

Cho, a native of Korea, is a pioneer of two of the most widely used medical diagnostic tools in the world: Positron Emission Topography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

He and his colleagues recently developed an imaging technique to eliminate the knocking sounds during MRIs.
