Episode 87: X-ray Vision - The Drive to See More

By combining the very latest advances in technology and computing, a UA team is building uniquely powerful imaging systems.

X-Ray Vision spot Developing new technologies for molecular imaging.

LISTEN

Lars Furenlid, Co-Director of the Center for Gamma-ray Imaging and Professor in Optical Sciences, works with a team of colleagues and graduate students to develop technologies for molecular imaging, the mapping of biological function using tiny amounts of radioisotope-labeled tracer molecules. By combining the very latest advances in light sensors, X-and gamma-ray imaging, electronics, additive manufacturing, and computing power with the mathematics-based principles of image science, the CGRI team is building uniquely powerful imaging systems for use in biomedical research and, in companion grants with collaborators, for use in the clinic.

In this episode:

Lars Furenlid, PhD, Co-Director of the Center for Gamma-ray Imaging, Professor of Medical Imaging in the College of Medicine and Professor in the College of Optical Sciences
Leslie Tolbert, Ph.D., Regents' Professor in Neuroscience
