Center for Gamma-ray Imaging

The Center for Gamma-Ray Imaging is a research resource funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The overall objective of the Center is to develop new gamma-ray imaging instruments with dramatically improved spatial and temporal resolution and to make them available to a wide community of biomedical and clinical researchers. The collaborative research supported by the Center applies these new imaging tools to basic research in functional genomics, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive neuroscience and to research in breast cancer and surgical tumor detection. In addition, the Center makes contributions to the emerging science of image quality assessment.
