CardioVascular BioImaging Core
The Cardiovascular (CV) BioImaging Core at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is a dedicated research facility for the acquisition and analysis of state of the science ultrasound imaging of the heart and vasculature. The Core allows researchers the ability to comprehensively assess vascular and cardiac health using the most advanced ultrasound and echo technology available. Investigators will also benefit from a centralized imaging processing center. The Core, directed by recognized experts in the field, is available to assist investigators with scientific development of new techniques and provide educational development to trainees and junior faculty members. One of the main goals of the Core is to bring together a diverse interdisciplinary group of investigators to foster new collaborations and facilitate acquisition of grants both locally and nationally for multi-site studies performing the same procedures/outcomes. This facility is in partnership with the Colorado Clinical Translational Science Institute (CCTSI), Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR), Vascular Biology Initiative (VBI), and the Division of Cardiology and Department of Bioengineering.
