Chest Imaging Research

The state-of-the-art Division of Cardiothoracic imaging has several active research programs with multivendor research relationships in Digital Radiography, X-ray tomography, Spectral/ Dual Energy CT, and MRI, engaging medical students and residents and clinical and basic science faculty members. We have an active human and small animal cardiac MR research program with six cardiac capable MRIs at our main and community campuses.

In addition, there are active and robust research programs in AI for lung cancer and cardiac disease with our Biomedical Engineering colleagues at Case Western Reserve University. Besides research activities in the direction of public health, including coronary artery calcium scoring and lung cancer screening, we also have a collaborative clinical cardiac imaging program with the department of cardiology, with projects including but not limited to pulmonary hypertension, exercise/stress MRI, and coronary CTA with CT FFR. We also have ongoing scholarly activities in collaboration with the Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care and the Division of Cardiac Surgery. We welcome your interest in joining us and being part of the ongoing research efforts.
