Biomedical Imaging

Biomedical imaging has enabled physicians and researchers to peer into the body to visualize internal anatomy and even track the function of systems, organs, tissues, cells, and molecules.  Major advances in biomedical imaging science and technology have significantly impacted the way we detect, diagnose, treat, and monitor disease, and this will only increase in the future.  Biomedical imaging encompasses many disciplines from engineering, physics, chemistry, and medicine, and uses many of the well-known methods such as x-ray computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound imaging, optical imaging, and nuclear imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
