University rank #372 (QS) , KS,
Bioimaging science is an evolving field of biomedicine and bioengineering that involves the development and application of imaging technologies and computational software tools to answer biological questions in life sciences. 

About

This discipline brings together engineers, computer scientists, physicists, biologists, chemists and clinicians engaged in the development of equipment and methodologies for characterizing tissue properties and examining its structure and function through in vivo or ex vivo visualization at multiple resolutions, ranging from molecular and cellular to organ level. The imaging technologies are mainly based on the principles of optics, photonics, magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine, radiation, ultrasonics and spectroscopy. Modern applications of bioimaging include multi-photon imaging, image-guided interventional procedures, surgical planning, oncology treatment planning, endoscopic and laparoscopic surgeries and virtual telemedicine. Image processing and analysis is an important part of bioimaging and allows measurement and quantification of anatomical, physiological and/or clinically meaningful parameters. This track is closely linked to the other tracks of the bioengineering program because of supplying critical supportive data. For example, as part of bioimaging, gene-array imaging and analysis provide data for mining with the techniques used in bioinformatics.
