Predoctoral Training in Medical Imaging at Duke 

The purpose of the Medical Imaging Training Program is to prepare students for interdisciplinary research at the cutting edge of medical imaging. Students participating in the program are funded for the first two years of graduate studies. Trainees undertake a comprehensive curriculum providing an initial broad training in medical physics and instrumentation followed by increasingly focused coursework in the student's area of specialization.

Predoctoral training in medical imaging is a large and vigorous effort at Duke University, drawing chiefly on the resources of the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology.  The 20 participating training faculty provide broad research opportunities with research interests in computer-aided diagnosis, x-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, optical imaging methods, and medical physics.

Training faculty are housed in the Pratt School of Engineering, the Department of Radiology, the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center, the Center for In Vivo Microscopy, the Center for Molecular and Biomolecular Imaging, the Multi-Modality Imaging Lab, and the Duke Advanced Imaging Laboratories. These faculty have a long history of collaboration in imaging research and graduate student training.
