   Biografi/ Biography :

  • Ahmad Nazlim Yusoff ialah ahli fizik dan ahli akademik di Pusat Kajian Diagnostik, Teraputik dan Penyiasatan (CODTIS), Fakulti Sains Kesihatan (FSK), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). Beliau memperoleh Sarjana Muda Sains (S.M.Sn.), Sarjana Sains (S.Sn.) dan Doktor Falsafah (Ph.D) dalam Fizik daripada UKM. Beliau mengajar kursus fizik di Program Pengimejan Diagnostik dan Radioterapi, UKM, terutama fizik am, fizik pengimejan resonans magnet dan fizik ultrasonografi perubatan. Beliau ialah Felo Persatuan Sains dan Teknologi Keadaan Pepejal Malaysia, Felo Persatuan Fizik Perubatan Malaysia dan Ahli Seumur Hidup Institut Fizik Malaysia. Berdasarkan pengalaman beliau dalam fizik tak mengion, beliau telah dilantik sebagai ahli Sub-working Committee for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Laser, Ultraviolet and Ultrasound, oleh Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia. Pada masa ini beliau menyandang jawatan Ketua Penyunting jurnal Physics and Technology in Medicine dan Buletin Sains Kesihatan serta Editor bagi jurnal Solid State Science and Technology. Minat penyelidikan beliau adalah kajian fungsi otak manusia menggunakan teknik pengimejan resonans magnet kefungsian (fMRI) yang mana data yang diperoleh dianalisis menggunakan pemetaan statistik berparameter (SPM) dan pemodelan sebab dan akibat dinamik (DCM). Penyelidikan terkini beliau adalah mengenai ciri jaringan mod lalai (DMN), iaitu sebahagian struktur otak yang menunjukkan aktiviti neuron yang tinggi semasa otak seseorang sedang berehat.
    Ahmad Nazlim Yusoff, is a Physicist and an Academic at the Centre for Diagnostic, Therapeutic and Investigative Studies (CODTIS), Faculty of Health Science (FHS), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). He obtained his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), Masters of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D), in Physics, from UKM. He teaches physics courses in the Diagnostic Imaging & Radiotherapy Program, UKM, particularly general physics, the physics of magnetic resonance imaging and the physics of medical ultrasonography. He is a Fellow of the Malaysian Solid State Science and Technology Society, Fellow of the Malaysian Association of Medical Physics and a Life Member of the Malaysian Institute of Physics. Due to his experience in non-ionising physics, he has been appointed a member of the Sub-working Committee for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Laser, Ultraviolet and Ultrasound, by the Ministry of Health Malaysia. Currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of Physics and Technology in Medicine, Buletin Sains Kesihatan and editor of Solid State Science and Technology journals. His research interest is on the study of human brain function using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technique from which, the data obtained are analyzed using statistical parametric mapping (SPM) and dynamic causal modelling (DCM). His current research is on the characteristics of the default mode network (DMN), parts of the brain structure that manifest higher neural activity when one`s brain is at rest. Studies have also been carried out by him to produce possible MRI phantoms which can be made easily from cheap and available materials, such as using agar gel and slime. The study among others investigated the suitability (homogeneity, stability and reproducibility) of the materials as MRI phantom by evaluating their SNR, T1 and T2 relaxations as a function of time after preparation.
