The Advanced Imaging Lab

The Advanced Imaging Lab (AIL) engages basic science and clinical faculty to provide a platform for cutting edge non-invasive translational imaging research. Our specialty (although not limited to) is MRI methods and postprocessing algorithm development for translational cardiovascular imaging. Research activities have focused on noninvasive cardiovascular MRI techniques, especially those investigating blood flow and vascular remodeling. The lab and faculty are actively engaged with mentoring graduate students, medical fellows, and junior faculty. 

Housed in Children’s Hospital Colorado, we focus on pediatric imaging; however, research activities span the lifetime of the patient. AIL faculty and staff include experts in MRI pulse sequence programming, cardiac and vascular MRI, image reconstruction and postprocessing. Additional services include the operation of an imaging core, which supports clinical and research image acquisition and postprocessing.
