Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation

Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation

The biomedical imaging and instrumentation research focus area is centered on developing and evaluating new imaging methods and approaches, encompassing device and system development, novel methods of signal acquisition and reconstruction, synthesis of imaging contrast and therapeutic agents, algorithm design, and image processing and computational analysis. Core research areas include ultrasound, MRI, optical imaging, PET, functional and molecular probes, advanced image analysis methods, and clinical decision support. Biomedical imaging and instrumentation research acts as a bridge between the engineering work at Georgia Tech and the basic science and clinical studies at Emory. Much of our work is translational, with applications to cardiovascular disease, cancer, neuroimaging, image-guided interventions, immunotherapy, histopathology, and more.
