2016 Triangle Imaging Symposium
The first annual Triangle Imaging Symposium held March 23, 2016 at UNC BRIC.
Thanks to all who participated for making the 2016 Triangle Imaging Symposium a success!
Overview of the BRIC
The BRIC houses state-of-the art imaging equipment, direct innovative imaging research programs, and provides outstanding skill and knowledge in imagining applications; specifically, the BRIC houses human imaging scanner, including at 3T MR, a hybrid PET/MR, a PET/CT and a 7T scanner. Similar imaging equipment for small animal studies is also available, allowing for seamless translation from bench to bedside. A cyclotron and radiochemisty facility capable of synthesizing radiotracers is also housed in the BRIC. Together with talented BRIC faculty with expertise in imaging acquistion, probe designs, analysis and statistics, and pre- and clinical applications, we strive to serve the needs of the University and to advance the rapidly developing science of biomedical imaging.
The 2016 Triangle Imaging Symposium at UNC BRIC will features lectures by invited internal and external speakers covering topics encompassing imaging methods, clinical/pre-clinical application, and image analysis. Poster presentation will be given by students, trainees, residents, and faculty to highlight imaging research projects within and outside UNC. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, March 23rd, from 8:30 AM – 5 PM in room 1131 of the Bioinformatics Building.
