Imaging Mission

The goal of the Imaging Core is to provide state-of-the-art, customized image acquisition, reconstruction, and quantitative analysis for pre-clinical (tissue samples and animal models) and in vivo human musculoskeletal research. These will include pre-clinical and clinical: 

  1. Acquisition and reconstruction of MRI/MRSI, PET, SPECT, CT, and optical tomography data
  2. Spatial registration of multi-modality images
  3. Extraction of quantitative information concerning biologically relevant image parameters
  4. Evaluation of the relationships of these imaging-derived parameters to biochemistry, histology, biomechanics, and physiology of biological systems interacting with the musculoskeletal system
