H. Keith Brown, PhD (Tulane University 1973) is a professor of Clinical Human Anatomy and Neuroscience in the department of Basic Medical Sciences at the Georgia Campus of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee Georgia. Email colormri@windstream.edu.

He has been working in the field of medical imaging since 1967. He received a B.S. in Biology/Chemistry from Augusta College, an M.S. in Medical Anatomy from the Medical College of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Medical Anatomy/Neuroscience from Tulane University.


Dr. Brown invented the Color Fusion MRI technology after several years of tissue segmentation/characterization research while he was a professor in the Departments of Radiology and Anatomy at the University of South Florida College Of Medicine in Tampa, Florida.


Dr. Brown's current research projects include developments in automatic tissue segmentation, tissue mapping and Color Fusion MRI for applications in diagnosis of neurological, musculoskeletal and gynecologic disorders. His research and development of the process for producing and efficiently viewing MR data as Color Fusion MRI is currently focused on 3-D reconstruction, medical education and computer aided diagnosis.
