Name: Resource:Duke University Medical Center: Duke Image Analysis Laboratory
Description:

The Duke Image Analysis Laboratory (DIAL) is committed to providing comprehensive imaging support in research studies and clinical trials to various agencies. The capabilities of the lab include protocol development, site training and certification, and image archival and analysis for a variety of modalities including magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, computed tomography and nuclear medicine.
DIAL uses the latest technologies to analyze Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data sets of the brain. Currently the lab is engaged in measurement of the hippocampus, amygdala, caudate, ventricular system, and other brain regional volumes. Each of these techniques have undergone a rigorous validation process. The measurements of brain structures provide a useful means of non-invasively testing for changes in the brain of the patient. Changes over time in the brain can be detected, and evaluated with respect to the treatment that the patient is receiving.
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) allows DIAL to obtain an accurate profile of the chemical content of the brain. This sensitive technique can detect small changes in the metabolic state of the brain; changes that vary in response to administration of therapeutic agents. The ability to detect these subtle shifts in brain chemistry allows DIAL to identify changes in the brain with more sensitivity than allowed by image analysis. In this respect, NMR spectroscopy can provide early detection of changes in the brain, and serves to compliment the data obtained from image analysis.

Additionally, DIAL also contains SQUID (Scalable Query Utility and Image Database). It is an image management system developed to facilitate image management in research and clinical trials: SQUID offers secure, redundant image storage and organizational functions for sorting and searching digital images for a variety of modalities including MRI, MRS, CAT Scan, X-Ray and Nuclear Medicine. SQUID can access images directly from DUMC scanners. Data can also be loaded via DICOM CDs
