Yibin Xie, PhD

The research of Yibin Xie, PhD, focuses on the development of non-invasive imaging techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to detect and characterize atherosclerosis. His research involves advanced image acquisition and reconstruction techniques, as well as machine learning-based post-processing aimed at improving the diagnosis and treatment strategies of major cardiovascular diseases, including stroke and coronary artery diseases.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
