Our research concentrates on the development and application of Quantitative Imaging technologies. Specifically, we are interested in synthesizing the information obtained from multiple imaging modalities and sources in order to study disease mechanisms and/or to aid in making clinical decisions.

Our research goals are to (1) provide efficient methods and procedures for mapping the properties of tissue in space and time, (2) integrate multiple information streams acquired from different imaging technologies into a single coherent picture, and (3) validate and interpret in vivo imaging data for biologic, physiologic, and pathologic interpretation. The research will combine multimodality imaging and multidimensional data to exploit our current knowledge of the genetic and molecular bases of various diseases and therefore to have substantial positive implications for disease prevention, detection, diagnosis, and therapy.
