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.
Investigative projects in the MCW Center for Imaging Research can be categorized either a) focusing on assessing a particular disease or b) developing novel technology that can be used in medical imaging assessments.
