Vascular Imaging Laboratory
The Vascular Imaging Laboratory (VIL) at the University of Washington is comprised of a multi-disciplinary group of researchers who are dedicated to advancing scientific knowledge, education, and training in the field of medical imaging. Our primary focus is atherosclerosis research using high-resolution MRI and other imaging modalities such as CT, PET and ultrasound. We also provide training, pathology and clinical trial services.
The Vascular Imaging Lab is committed to advancing imaging technology and identifying the underlying causes of cardiovascular disease initiation, progression, and complications.
