The CIBS concentration is designed for students wishing to specialize in computer generated image reconstruction for understanding visualization of normal and diseased organ function and accurate localization of tumors in organs. Emphasis is placed on understanding aspects of clinical research including drug development, biology of disease and functional imaging coupled with structural aspects obtained from computer generated image reconstruction to arrive at the final reconstructed 3D image.
The purpose of functional and structural image reconstruction is to provide health care providers with an accurate location for treatment as well as for monitoring therapeutic outcome. The CIBS concentration will utilize expertise of faculty at GSBS, RU and the Biopharmaceutical industry. In addition to courses offered in the MSCTS program, students will learn several imaging modalities used in medical imaging and the algorithms used for accurate image reconstruction in courses offered by the Computer Science Department at RU. State of the art instrumentation and image reconstruction methods will be taught with students also learning the biology and science behind many of the imaging techniques used in clinical practice.
