Medical Imaging and Simulation Lab (MEDIS)

Medical Imaging and Simulation Lab (MEDIS) performs analysis and simulation of medical images, with particular emphasis on breast imaging. One of the major achievements of the lab is a novel algorithm for breast simulation that resulted in first in the world 25 micrometer resolution software breast phantom.

The lab actively collaborates with institutions such as University of Pennsylvania Dept. of Radiology, Temple University , University of Chicago, University of Nis, Serbia, and US Food and Drug Administration.

The lab has participated in the following grants:
