Division of Applied Science & Technology (Bioimaging)
Science Highlights ·The Medical Imaging and Data Resource Center (MIDRC), a collaboration of leading medical imaging organizations funded by NIBIB, has launched a repository of imaging data to facilitate medical imaging research on COVID-19.
Grantee News ·A team of engineers has demonstrated how a new algorithm they developed was able to successfully predict whether or not a COVID-19 patient would need ICU intervention. This artificial intelligence-based approach could be a valuable tool in determining a proper course of treatment for individual patients.
Grantee News ·A scientist and entrepreneur is working to use simple LED light to help determine if certain chemotherapy options will work for specific patients.
Grantee News ·Engineers have demonstrated how a deep learning algorithm can be applied to a conventional computerized tomography (CT) scan in order to produce images that would typically require a higher level of imaging technology known as dual-energy CT.
Grantee News ·Neuroscientists distinguish brain regions based on what they do, but now have a new way to overlay information about how they are built, too.
