Division of Imaging Sciences
Medical College of Wisconsin
Department of Radiology
The Division of Imaging Sciences offers graduate education in medical physics and imaging sciences. Faculty conduct research and help assure the radiology department's compliance with the highest standards of safety and image quality.
The Division of Imaging Sciences provides research and clinical training for biophysics graduate students in the area of diagnostic medical physics. The biophysics graduate program's other two tracks are Electron Spin Resonance and Magnetic Resonance.
Research interests are in the development and application of x-ray photon absorptiometric techniques for the quantitative measurement of bone and soft tissue composition. Both dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed topography are used to provide quantitative measurements for causes of body mass atrophy in the aging population and the genetic influence in obesity.
The division is also actively involved in evaluation of mammography imaging techniques, quality control test tools, phantoms, and provides medical physics consultation service in mammography and general diagnostic imaging.
There are four sections within the Division of Imaging Services:
Section of Education
Section of Imaging Research
Section of Informatics
Section of Medical Physics
