CENTER FOR VIRTUAL IMAGING TRIALS

A virtual platform for evaluating medical imaging technologies from design to use

CVIT is a National Center for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering supported by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and operated at Duke University.

Phantoms in Space

Two phantoms the Center helped with, Helga and Zohar, are set to launch on NASA’s Artemis I rocket. The phantoms will be taking a trip around the moon to measure radiation exposure as they travel through space. The ultimate goal is to explore the possibility of sending humans to Mars.

A New Methodology

We offer an efficient methodology for evaluating imaging technologies and applications in silico using computational models simulating the patient, the imaging system, and the image reader.

These models comprise our three technology, research, and development (TR&D) endeavors, where we continue to provide realistic computational models of human anatomy (virtual patients), state-of-the-art CT scanners (virtual scanners), and clinically relevant image analysis (virtual readers).

The TR&Ds work synergistically to offer comprehensive resources and essential training to partners through our various collaborative and service projects as well as training and dissemination efforts.
