The I-STAR Lab is a collaborative research endeavor based in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Research areas include:
Imaging Physics: Mathematical models of imaging performance in advanced modalities, including cone-beam CT and spectral / dual-energy imaging.
3D Image Reconstruction: Advanced 3D image reconstruction based on statistical models of the imaging chain and prior information.
Novel Imaging Systems: Preclinical prototypes translated from the laboratory to first application in diagnostic and interventional procedures.
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.
