Our research is supported by the Center for Translational Imaging, the Quantitative Imaging Core Lab, and the Advanced Imaging Analytical Lab. Learn more about these cores below, or see a full list of Feinberg cores via the Office of Research website.
Center for Translational Imaging (CTI)
The CTI is a Department of Radiology research facility providing world-class translational imaging capabilities that promote the pre-clinical and clinical research efforts of Northwestern University investigators and our regional academic and industrial partners. CTI occupies a 9,000-square-foot space in the basement of the Olson building that houses state-of-the-art imaging equipment and dedicated research staff.
Quantitative Imaging Core Lab (QICL)
The Department of Radiology's QICL provides consistent, standardized, and high-quality medical image analysis for clinical research trials. To date, the QICL has reviewed imaging protocols and analyzed images for over 100 industry- and investigator-initiated clinical trials. We provide a comprehensive set of quantitative imaging services for clinical and research purposes, in particular in oncology and for evaluation of responses to cancer therapies. Quantitative Imaging Core Lab is affiliated with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
Advanced Imaging Analytical Lab (AIAL)
AIAL is a clinical core lab that serves as a post-processing center for cardiovascular imaging.
CTI: Interventional Angiography is a Northwestern University core facility resource operated by the Department of Radiology. The facility provides expertise and access to equipment for interventional Xray guided imaging for translational pre-clinical studies (C-arm Fluoroscopy system GE OEC One).
