BMEII Imaging Science programs work to improve diagnostics and treatment effectiveness by developing state-of-the-art imaging acquisition and processing techniques.
Our imaging programs are focused on applications in neuroimaging, cancer & body imaging, cardiovascular/cardiac imaging and immunoimaging. The Clinical Trials Unit develops imaging endpoints for multicenter clinics and the Imaging Research Warehouse integrates imaging with electronic health records.
