Center for In Vivo Microscopy

The Duke Center for In Vivo Microscopy (CIVM) is an NIH National Biomedical Technology Research Center dedicated to developing novel methods for preclinical imaging and applying those methods to important biomedical problems. Learn more…

Duke-UNC Brain Imaging and Analysis Center

The Brain Imaging and Analysis Center (BIAC) encompasses more than 10,000 sq. ft. of new and newly-renovated space on the Duke University Medical Center campus.  The BIAC Scientific Review Committee meets to review new protocols and renewals.  Included in BIAC resources are two research-dedicated MRI suites, an expansion bay (currently housing the MRI Simulation Facilities), image analysis laboratories, an RF coil construction shop, and offices for faculty and students engaged in imaging methodology development. BIAC’s computing facilities consist of a high-speed network of Windows and Linux servers, workstations and cluster nodes. Data analysis is performed using custom-developed software, commercial software, and software obtained from other research MRI centers. Learn more…

Translational PET/CT Molecular Imaging Center

FDG PET / CT is currently the “gold standard” tumor staging modality for the vast majority of patients with cancer. Prior to June of 2013, most patients in need of clinical FDG PET / CT were faced with the “coverage under evidence development” (CED) reimbursement issue posed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS, commonly known as Medicare). The translation of this scientific imaging modality into clinical standard of care required over 2 decades. A major goal of this center is to facilitate the acceleration of scientific discovery into clinical practice. Learn more…
