MR Image Reconstruction

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a biomedical imaging modality with outstanding features such as excellent soft tissue contrast and very high spatial resolution. Despite its great properties, MRI suffers from some drawbacks, such as low sensitivity and long acquisition times.

Imagen por Rayos X

El trabajo del laboratorio en el área de imagen por rayos X engloba todas las etapas de formación de imagen por rayos X desde la adquisición de los datos hasta la cuantificación de imagen pasando por calibración, pre- y post-proceso de imagen y reconstrucción tomográfica. El trabajo es este área se puede dividir en dos líneas principales: "Sistemas de rayos X clínicos" y "Sistemas de tomografía por rayos X para pequeño animal".

PET technologies

This research area is mainly focused on the development of new biomedical molecular imaging technologies based on positron emission tomography, and in its applications in clinical and preclinical research. The use of translational designs is in the centre of our activity, aiming to introduce innovative essays of new biomedical paradigms based on in vivo functional imaging.

Simulation devices

Modern teaching in Medicine and Health Sciences makes use of new tools that enable a faster and better learning, reducing risks for patients and optimizing efficiency in terms of cost. Many technologies are involved, from e-learning recources to the use of specific simulation devices which allow trainees to get acquainted with situations that are either unfrequent or highly risky for real patients.

Within this research line we investigate, in close relationship with industrial companies in this field, new technologies that may convey advantages over existing systems and devices.
