Imaging Core Laboratory


The Imaging Core Laboratory (ICL) through the Wright Center of Innovation at The Ohio State University performs visual reads, quantification, lesion tracking, perfusion and metabolic mapping, pharmacokinetic analysis, quantification of lesion heterogeneity, 3D segmentation and rendering in addition to conventional methodologies such as RECIST / WHO, Volume tracking and morphologic characterization.

The ICL is located on the 4th floor of 395 W. 12th Avenue.

The following are core modalities and services of the ICL that is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team:

Imaging Modalities

  • PET/CT
  • CT
  • MRI
  • X-Ray
  • Mammography
  • Nuclear Medicine studies
  • Preclinical validation for translational studies including uCT, uPET/CT, uSPECT/CT,

In final stages of development for core lab services:
