Collaborative Labs

Bashir Lab for Liver Imaging Research

Our laboratory focuses on advanced imaging methodologies in body imaging, especially MRI of the liver. We aim to further our understanding of existing techniques and develop novel imaging methods, in part through a rich group of collaborations with members of the Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis Clinical Research Network (NASH CRN) and Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) committee.

Barboriak Laboratory

The goal of our research is to improve the care of patients with malignant brain tumors. Our first aim is to use magnetic resonance imaging and other techniques to better understand how malignant brain tumors recur and spread. Learn more…

Duke Image Analysis Laboratory

The Duke Image Analysis Laboratory (DIAL) is committed to providing comprehensive imaging support in in research studies and clinical trials to various agencies. The capabilities of the lab include protocol development, site training and certification, and image archival and analysis for a variety of modalities including magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, computed tomography, and nuclear medicine.

Driehuys Laboratory

My research program is focused on developing and applying hyperpolarized gases to enable fundamentally new applications in MRI. Currently we use this technology to non-invasively image pulmonary function in 3D. Learn more…

Soher Laboratory

My research focuses on the development and clinical translation of quantitative, multi-parametric MRI and MR spectroscopy (MRS) data acquisition and analysis techniques. These methods are applicable to the characterization of both chronic and focal pathologies, originally in the brain, but more recently in other organs such as liver and muscle. Learn more…

Active Research Projects

Our Center supports biomedical research throughout the entire Duke research community, and collaborates with numerous study teams and institutes affiliated with Duke. Our collaborations extend outside of Duke as well. We also support a large number of clinical trials as an imaging center and via core labs operated by our faculty.
