Medical Imaging Research Center
The Medical Imaging Research Center (MIRC) is a research group dedicated to technological advances in medical imaging, including development of new methods of image acquisition, image processing and analysis, machine learning, and kinetic modeling. The center builds devices, algorithms, and software methods for MRI, phase-contrast x-ray, mammography, CT, PET, SPECT, and fluorescence imaging to address diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, heart disease and various forms of cancer. MIRC distributes shared tools such as the IIT White Matter Atlas and the IIT 3D Breast Lesion Model. MIRC is housed in IIT's University Technology Park, and is affiliated with IIT's Pritzker Institute of Biomedical Science and Engineering.
