Welcome to the National Center of Image Guided Therapy (NCIGT) Wiki! We are an NIH funded Biomedical Technology Resource Center that is currently in its third 5-year funding cycle. See NIH press release that announced the inception of NCIGT in 2005. Our Center provides a unique, centralized infrastructure for clinical investigators, biomedical engineers, and basic scientists in promoting and advancing IGT methods and related clinical applications. We are developing and making available new innovative technologies in four discrete Technical Research and Technology (TRD) Core Projects:
- Prostate Interventions
- Image-Guided Neurosurgery
- Computational and Imaging
- Guidance Core
These key research initiatives represent the technical and clinical infrastructure of the Resource. They are anticipated to have significant effect on several future IGT methods and clinical applications; and will combine forces with several independently funded Collaborations that address various essential technical or clinical aspects of IGT. Our overarching goal is to create a Center that is national in character reaching effectively across a broad range of constituencies through training in and dissemination of the novel technologies and methods under development in this Resource.
This wiki is meant to encourage quick and efficient communication among the participating investigators and collaborators. The public webpage for NCIGT is ncigt.org and contains research descriptions, collaborations, events as well as publications of each core. The Events page on this wiki contains links to internal meetings that are typically not advertised publicly.
