Dr. Ayman El-Baz isthe founder and the director of BioImaging Lab The main focus of this lab is to develop and implement innovative and ground-breaking techniques for use in image-guided surgeries and the creation of non-invasive image-based diagnostic systems, which can help to revolutionize the early diagnosis of numerous diseases and brain disorders. The work of the BioImaging lab has achieved worldwide recognition and is helping to pave the way for upcoming cutting-edge medical systems.  This work has led to the establishment of strong and successful interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers in the Medical School at the University of Louisville, the Radiology Department at the University of Chicago, the Computer Science Department at the University of Auckland, and the Kidney Transplant Center at University of Mansoura. The main research contributions  include: 1) Development of a new image-based technology for the early diagnosis of lung cancer, 2) Development of techniques for the early diagnosis of Autism, 3) Development of a new technology for the early detection of Acute renal rejection, 4) Development of a new technology for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer using non-invasive diffusion magnetic resonance images, and 5) Development of image based systems for the early detection of heart failure using tagged, cine, and late contrast magnetic resonance images.
