Richard L. Morin, PhD

Brooks-Hollern Professor and Professor of Radiologic Physics, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL

Richard L. Morin, PhD, is the Brooks-Hollern Professor and professor of radiologic physics at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. He has been certified in medical nuclear physics and in diagnostic radiological physics by the American Board of Radiology. He has also served as treasurer of the Florida Radiological Society. 

Dr. Morin's research interests include electronic medical imaging, computers in medical imaging, cardiovascular CT, teleradiology, and the biological effects of radiation. 

Dr. Morin's most recent academic publications include studies on utilization strategies for cumulative estimates of radiation dose, the development of a standardized exposure index for digital radiography, and an automated DICOM database for quality monitoring.
