Kyung Sung

Dr. Sung is an Associate Professor of Radiology, where his research primarily focuses on the development of novel medical imaging methods and artificial intelligence using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, in 2008, and from 2008 to 2012, he finished his postdoctoral training at Stanford in the Departments of Radiology. He joined the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Department of Radiological Sciences, in 2012. His research interest is to develop fast and reliable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques that can provide improved diagnostic contrast and useful information. In particular, his research group ( is currently focused on developing advanced deep learning algorithms and quantitative MRI techniques for early diagnosis, treatment guidance, and therapeutic response assessment for oncologic applications. Such developments can offer more robust and reproducible measures of biologic markers associated with human cancers.
