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.

Daniel P. 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. We are currently studying whether perfusion and diffusion techniques can provide information that allow earlier predication of locations where tumor will recur or of locations to which recurrent tumor will spread. We are also interested in using these techniques to develop surrogate markers to assess treatment response. The goal of this effort would be to allow earlier detection of treatment successes and failures, and also to provide quantitative methods that would allow comparison of treatments. Learn more…

Molecular Cancer Biology Laboratory

Under the direction of Dr. Edward F. Patz, Jr, the Molecular Cancer Biology laboratory focuses on translational sciences related to the early detection of cancer and mechanisms of metastasis.  Primary investigative areas include the development of molecular imaging probes, cancer biomarkers, phenotype predictive models, and the influence of humoral immunity in tumor regulation. Learn more…


Multi-Dimensional Image Processing Laboratory

The Multi•D Lab has established a variety of services for Duke researchers and clinicians. Investigational Services include de-identification of radiology studies, liver radio-embolization treatment planning with volumes, surgical planning for trans-aortic valve replacement, and a variety of other studies utilizing biomarkers for disease progression.  The Tumor Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) measurement service has been in operation since 2012.Clinical services include 3D imaging for Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) angiograms as well as non-angiographic exams including CT musculoskeletal, body, craniofacial, and virtual colonoscopy, and MRI body imaging when requested. Learn more…


Radiation Dosimetry Laboratory

The Duke Radiation Dosimetry Laboratory (DRDL) is operated jointly by the Department of Radiology and the Duke Radiation Safety Division. The primary goals of the laboratory are: (a) to provide technical support in patient dosimetry at Duke University Medical Center; (b) to serve as core dosimetry laboratory to various radiation biology research groups on campus; (c) to provide research training in radiation dosimetry for residents, postdoctoral fellows, undergraduate / graduate students and visiting researchers; and (d) to perform research and development in new detector technologies. Learn more…
