Imaging for Surgery, Therapy and Radiology (I-STAR) Lab

  • The Imaging for Surgery, Therapy and Radiology (I-STAR) Lab is a collaborative research endeavor based in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Research areas include: (1) Imaging physics: Mathematical models of imaging performance in advanced modalities, including cone-beam CT and spectral/dual-energy imaging, (2) 3-D image reconstruction: Advanced 3-D image reconstruction based on statistical models of the imaging chain and prior information, (3) Novel imaging systems: Preclinical prototypes translated from the laboratory to first application in diagnostic and interventional procedures, and(4) Image-guided interventions and diagnostic radiology: High-precision interventional guidance systems (for surgery, interventional radiology, and radiation therapy) and new technologies for high-quality diagnostic imaging.

    Research Areas: 3-D, physics, imaging, radiology, surgery, CT
