Medical Imaging

Desarrollado por: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Hospital Clinic de Barcelona - IDIBAPS



The main objectives of the Medical Imaging facility are:
  1. To provide services related to medical imaging techniques for researchers from IDIBAPS and other institutions, and to industries connected with health.
  2. To perform first-rate basic and clinical research into medical imaging using structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy,molecular imaging, other types of medical imaging and image processing.
  3. To provide researcher with training in techniques and basic research to enable them to conduct experimental and clinical studies, thereby allowing them to explore the advantages of translational research.
