The Contrast Agent Lab is involved in the design, synthesis, and evaluation of novel targeted molecular imaging agents for computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and nuclear medicine including PET. Our design strategy is based on a biochemical approach, whereby naturally occurring compounds known to be stored and or metabolized in the organ or tissue of interest serve as carriers for the radiologic moiety.
The Liver Imaging Research Program (LIRP) is a diverse multidisciplinary group of physicists, engineers, radiologists, surgeons, hematologists, endocrinologists, pathologists and pediatricians interested in the advancement of human health through improved abdominal imaging technologies. We focus on development and translation of new imaging methods, particularly MRI, for improved detection and quantification of diseases affecting the abdomen.
The SUMMIT lab is a multi-disciplinary team striving to find effective minimally invasive treatments for common musculoskeletal tendon injuries such as tennis elbow, patellar tendinitis, Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. Using a Team Science approach, we incorporate tools such as biomechanical sensors, special ultrasound measurements, and state-of-the-art MRI to stratify disease severity and assess healing response.
Our primary goal is to develop minimally invasive techniques to treat cancer. We use small-diameter applicators to destroy malignant tissue while minimizing damage to normal, healthy tissue. We are a cross-disciplinary group, working to take ideas from the bench to the clinic—from conceptualization to computer modeling, construction of prototypes and preclinical testing, to optimization and clinical trials.
The Neuroimaging Research Program within the Department of Radiology is a source of comprehensive neuroimaging research and advanced neuroimaging clinical services such as fMRI, DTI, and more, for the entire neuroimaging community at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. This program provides access to a wide variety of current modalities available within the Department of Radiology and…
