Mission Statement

Biomedical imaging is an interdisciplinary field with roots in biology, medicine, physics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. It encompasses a broad spectrum of techniques and processes for acquiring, analyzing, storing, transmitting, visualizing and interpreting imaged molecules, cells, tissues, organs and organisms for the purposes of investigative research and a wide range of diagnostic and clinical activities.Investigators at the Center for Biomedical Imaging & Informatics continue to develop new approaches in automated image interpretation, statistical pattern recognition, data mining, computer-based diagnostics, and high-performance computing to address challenges in computational biology, and diagnostic pathology and radiology.
