Welcome to the Computational Bioimaging Laboratory

The Computational Bioimaging Laboratory (CBL) performs research in computational and theoretical image science and pursues the advancement of emerging bioimaging methods.

We are engaged in the development and translation of advanced image reconstruction methods and imaging system designs for a diverse range of emerging imaging modalities that include X-ray phase-contrast imaging, photoacoustic tomography, X-ray computed tomography, and ultrasound tomography.   Our research seeks to address important needs in clinical medicine and basic biomedical research such as improved imaging methods for the early detection and management of cancer, vascular diseases, brain injuries, and characterization of biomaterials.

Research in the CBL is conducted within Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis.

The CBL is directed by Professor Mark Anastasio and funded by the  National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation.
