Research in Radiology at Stony Brook

For over 45 years, Stony Brook University has been at the forefront of medical imaging research. Stony Brook is the birth place of MRI (Nobel laureate Dr. Paul Lauterbur) and was involved in developing the mainstay nuclear imaging tracers (FDG for PET imaging and technetium-99m for SPECT), in vivo hyperpolarized Xenon MRI of the lung, and the diagnostic breakthrough of  virtual colonoscopy. Our faculty continue to drive discovery and advancement in PET, MRI, tomosynthesis, virtual colonoscopy, image analysis, image feature extraction, detector technologies, and medical physics. They apply these technologies to study anatomy, physiology and function in health and disease at the system level (brain, cardiac, body, and MSK). Our research portfolio spans the entire spectrum of basic, translational to clinical research in imaging sciences. The department is also home to a CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics graduate and residency program.
