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.
Employing cutting-edge imaging technology
to visualize the brain in unprecedented
details and through new filters.
Undertaking groundbreaking studies in the
use of imaging for the early detection and
treatment assessment of cancer
Developing and using noninvasive imaging methods
that allow the early detection, prevention, and treatment
