Imaging Research Lab
The radiological imaging research division is involved in a number of projects aimed at evaluating and improving imaging procedures in a clinical environment. The division’s experienced research faculty provides expertise in radiological physics and computer and information science, as well as evaluation of diagnostic systems and clinical practices.
The group has engaged in a number of collaborative projects with the women’s imaging division, the largest clinical division in the Department of Radiology. Projects have included assessment of a full-field digital mammography system and the effect of computer-aided detection on diagnosis in screening for early detection of breast cancer.
This division’s research findings have resulted in numerous basic and applied publications and presentations in every major radiology journal and at society meeting, such as the annual RSNA. The International Society for Optical Engineering has also taken a particular interest in the group’s work, and the division members have presented a large number of papers at the society’s annual meetings.
