Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research (UCAIR)

UCAIR, or the Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research, is the research division of the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. We are also a university-recognized center, supporting all types of imaging research throughout the campus.

INC Building
UCAIR is located in the INC building

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.

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

What Is "Imaging"?

Imaging at the Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research refers to all those technologies required to visualize objects not readily visible to the naked eye. Our emphasis is on medical imaging, particularly CT, MRI, PET, and SPECT, but we have interests in engineering and materials science too.
