The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Lab at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) is part of the Medical Imaging Research Center (MIRC) at IIT. The work conducted in the MRI Lab includes the development of MRI data acquisition, image reconstruction and processing techniques, and the application of these methods for the diagnosis and monitoring of brain disease.

The MRI Lab at IIT is home of the IIT Human Brain Atlas. The atlas contains: anatomical, DTI, HARDI templates, and probabilistic gray matter labels in ICBM152 space. To download the atlas, please follow the “Downloads” link.
