The four main categories of work performed are as follows: 

  • Radiation safety review: For research procedures requiring radiation (study protocol and consent forms required)
  • 3D modeling, data activities: Surface/structure reconstruction, volume rendering, image analytic processing 
  • Research image copying: Media or digital transfer 
  • Study setup (post-award): Full study setup assistance for data-collection or image management (multi-site study DICOM transfer/storage) 

Note: Image copying and study setup require a budget number (LAN) prior to submission.
