Research in medical imaging is a wide field which spans from the physics of image acquisition to the analysis of the generated images. Between these two ends, the medical imaging chain involves several additional steps, such as image generation, reconstruction and processing, along with radiation dosimetry characterization, quality control, and human and computer image interpretation. To maximize the effectiveness of medical imaging, all these steps need to be optimized and assessed before advancing a medical imaging modality into the clinic or for a new clinical application. AXTI aims to have an impact in all these stages, covering different medical physics, biomedical engineering, human image perception, and computer science skills that work together for the characterization and optimization of advanced x-ray-based medical imaging methods and their application. Below you can find our main research topics, which are grouped by main research areas and by the imaging modalities involved.
