Functional Imaging

Functional Imaging focuses on developing and utilizing cutting-edge non-invasive imaging tools to address the biological questions and medical problems. Imaging of biological and disease processes at functional, physiological, cellular and molecular levels will enable us to better understand and differentiate the human diseases and dysfunctions.

The functional imaging scientific interest group promotes the development, optimization and application of innovative, novel and translational imaging methods to monitor milestones in normal and abnormal development, to study the functional and structural changes in healthy and various disease conditions. The aim of this group is to bring together a multidisciplinary team of imaging scientist, biologists, clinicians, bioengineers, mathematician and physicists to share knowledge on latest developments on noninvasive magnetic resonance imaging based techniques for studying tissue metabolism and function. In addition to the development and discovery research, we also focus on clinical research, particularly in the areas of clinical applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and perfusion MRI for diagnosis and evaluation of different human pathologies.

We strongly encourage collaborations throughout Sidra and other institutions, providing a broad range of expertise and resources in biomedical imaging including MRI and MRS methods, image data processing and analysis, pre-clinical animal models of cancer and human imaging. This group also offers interdisciplinary training projects and an educational environment, with a strong emphasis in translational and clinical applications.
