Collaboration Through Dissemination
Center for Gamma-Ray Imaging
The primary focus of the Center for Gamma-Ray Imaging (CGRI) is to develop new gamma-ray imaging instruments and techniques that yield substantially improved spatial and temporal resolutions. The Center makes its imagers and expertise available to a wide community of biomedical and clinical researchers through collaborative and service-oriented interactions. The collaborative research applies these new imaging tools to basic research in functional genomics, proteomics, cancer, cardiovascular disease and cognitive neuroscience, and to clinical research in tumor detection and other selected topics. There are five core research projects: Detector technology research and development; Reconstruction algorithms and system modeling; Data acquisition, signal processing, and system development; Image-quality assessment and system optimization; Techniques for molecular imaging.
