Center for Biomedical Imaging
The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Center for Biomedical Imaging of New York University’s Department of Radiology was established in 2003. Its mission is to develop new imaging technologies for the improved medical care of patients. The core technologies being developed include high field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), computed tomography (CT), and quantitative image analysis and modeling. Major areas of research emphasis include neurologic and neurovascular disorders, cardiovascular disease, breast and prostate cancer, pulmonary function and disease, hepatobiliary and renal function and disease, and more. Much of the technical research focuses on development of MR hardware for accelerated imaging at high magnetic field strengths. The center houses a dedicated RF coil laboratory to support this research. With a world-class group of investigators, including onsite collaborators from industry, state-of-the-art imaging technology, substantial federal, commercial, and private supporters, and strong infrastructural support, the CBI is pushing the frontiers of biomedical imaging in ways that directly translate into better health care.
