Cheuk Y. Tang, Ph.D., received his Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of California at Irvine under the supervision of Dr. Zang Hee Cho, a pioneer in PET and MRI. Dr. Tang has been involved with multiple aspects of medical imaging since he finished his undergraduate studies in Physics, Mathematics and Computer science. He has been involved with image processing of PET and MRI imaging modalities. His interests involved edge detection and tissue classification. He developed a complete image processing software system including a fully automated edge detection expert software system for PET scans for the UCI Brain Imaging Center. During his graduate studies Dr. Tang studied the physics and engineering of PET, Cyclotrons and MRI systems. He was the chief engineer for Irvine Imaging International Inc., and was responsible for the design, simulation and construction of a prototype mini-PET camera. Later in his graduate career he focused on MRI physics where he studied fast imaging using various modulation schemes of the DANTE sequence and diffusion imaging. His Ph.D. dissertation was on the integration of diffusion tensor technique and functional MRI. Dr. Tang joined the faculty at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York in 1999 where he is currently Associate Professor of Radiology and Psychiatry. His current research is focused on integration of functional and resting state fMRI with Diffusion Tensor Imaging and its application to neuropsychiatric disorders. He is the director of the preclinical imaging laboratories of TMII.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Tang did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2018 and/or 2019: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
