Summary

University of Wisconsin neuroscience programs are located at .....

Using MRI scanning technology, Center for Imaging Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin are determining the direct effects of sports-related concussions on brain structure and function.The aim of the study is to advance the discovery of more objective biomarkers to assist in diagnosing concussion, determining when an athlete’s brain has fully recovered, and clinical decision making about the athlete’s fitness to return to play after a concussion.

Center for Imaging Research

The Center for Imaging Research (CIR) at the Medical College of Wisconsin facilitates mutidisciplinary collaboration among imaging scientists and clinicians at academic institutions within the Milwaukee region. In addition, the CIR manages research imaging facilities in the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center.

CIR Mission:  “The Center for Imaging Research unites basic and clinical scientists of various disciplines to further the development and application of functional imaging in health and disease.”

Investigators from 11 MCW departments, as well as researchers from Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, make up the CIR. Using an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, we assist one another in developing novel solutions to unmet clinical needs.

The CIR has a distinguished history in uniting basic and clinical scientists of various disciplines to further the development and application of medical imaging technology. Investigative projects at the CIR span a wide variety of disease states and topics of technological development.
