Medical Imaging

Medical imaging encompasses a wide range of technologies (including MRI, CT, ultrasound, PET, etc.) that permit visualization of the internal structure and function of the human body. Medical imaging is an essential part of today's health care, biomedical research, and drug development, and is one of the most important contributions that engineering has made to patient care. Cutting-edge areas of medical imaging include development of new types of imaging, new hardware and computer software, and new ways of using, visualizing, and analyzing medical images (for more information visit the Medical Imaging Research Center).

Areas of specialization include:

  • Medical imaging processing and analysis
  • Development of new phase-sensitive x-ray imaging
