Dennis ParkerThe Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is fortunate to have an internationally acclaimed research division, Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research (UCAIR). UCAIR is a university-recognized center, supporting all types of imaging research throughout the campus. UCAIR currently consists of 75 employees including PhD scientists, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students, clinical radiologists, and staff. We provide the technology and infrastructure necessary to conduct and support research, including state-of-the-art imaging hardware and imaging techniques, as well as opportunities for collaboration with our research-oriented medical physicists, engineers, radiologists and technologists. UCAIR also supports two clinical coordinators to facilitate clinical trials. UCAIR is located in the INC building in Research Park, adjacent to the University of Utah campus and the University of Utah Medical Center.

A major goal of UCAIR is to develop novel imaging solutions to important medical problems. Our emphasis is on CTMRI, PET, and SPECT and their novel clinical applications.
