Indiana University Imaging Center receives $6M grant for kidney research

  • An emphasis on improving quantitative analysis accompanying images: "Instead of just getting an impressive image, we get an impressive image with quantitative physiological data associated with it. Instead of just saying, it looks like the blood flow is lower, we have developed methods so that we can quantify blood flow," Dr. Molitoris said.

  • Development of techniques to get images from deeper in tissues. Currently maximum depth for imaging is about 0.2 millimeters in the kidney. The goal is to double or triple that depth.

  • In collaboration with Paul Salama, Ph.D., associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at IUPUI and Edward J. Delp, Ph.D., professor of biomedical engineering at Purdue University, the center will begin offering its services via a televisualization system so that scientists can make use of the facilities without having to travel here, Dr. Molitoris said.

The O'Brien grant also includes provisions for several pilot projects for technology development with researchers at IU, the University of Pittsburgh and Harvard University.

The pilot projects, Dr. Molitoris said, "extend what we do to a number of people on campus, and provide outside users access to expertise that is not available on their own campus."
