The Medical Imaging Research Center (MIRC) is an interdisciplinary research center in the University Hospital Gasthuisberg. The focus lies on fundamental and translational research in the area of medical imaging and image processing. The center is a joined initiative of the KU Leuven (Biomedical Sciences) and the University Hospitals Leuven. Over 100 engineers, physicians and physicists are working closely together with bioscientists and clinicians. The MIRC-members are the department of Electrical Engineering (PSI), the department of Imaging and Pathology (Radiology and Nuclear Medicine), the department of Cardiovascular Sciences, the department of Neurosciences and the department of Radiotherapy.
The division of Nuclear Medicine is based at the University Hospital Gashuisberg, Leuven, and is part of the Faculty of Medicine of the Leuven University. Its mission is centered around the four poles of a university hospital: health care, research, education and community service.
