|Welcome to the Duke University Virtual
Imaging Laboratory. This site is intended to provide
a teaching supplement for courses in medical imaging. The four different
imaging modalities that are represented here are Ultrasound, MRI,
Nuclear Medicine, and X-Ray Imaging.
Several tutorials are under development that provide access to the simulation tools we use for medical imaging research at Duke University. One of the many exciting web tools that we are developing includes Virtual Imaging Systems (VISs). VISs allow user control of the settings that are available on the specified imaging systems, and thus allow you to learn how to use a given imaging system. Another feature provided by this website includes the use of a Matlab Webserver, for which we are a Beta-Test site. This allows you to utilize our web server to run simulations, instead of downloading the tool and running locally on your system. This will be slower than running locally; however, in order to run locally you must have Matlab available on your system.
To get started, simply select the imaging modality of your choice and follow the instructions to download the tool (if necessary) and perform the tutorial.
This laboratory is the result of a collaboration between several imaging
research laboratories at Duke University. Feel free to contact us
with comments or questions.
