KeynoteThank you to everyone who helped make the 2017 Triangle Imaging Symposium a success! Thanks for joining us!

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.
