Medical Imaging/Radiology Research Program

The research program in the Department of Medical Imaging encompasses a range of studies, including clinical trials, that generate insights to help specialists care for their patients with the best imaging procedures possible. Some of these imaging procedures include the 4D flow MRI, an experimental type of MRI that uses three dimensions and time to examine blood flow in vessels and is in use at only a few U.S. medical centers; a special type of MRI (multicompartment, diffusion weighted) that can differentiate between a brain tumor or tissue damage that can occur from radiation therapy; and MRI to measure brown fat to assess development of childhood obesity. Learn more about the Medical Imaging/Radiology Research Program.
