Dr. Beyea's laboratory focuses on the development, application and clinical/commercial translation of novel diagnostic imaging technologies. Research in the lab encompasses the development of acquisition techniques and analysis algorithms for parametric and functional mapping using clinical MRI and MEG (magnetoencephalography), as well as multimodal integration in both clinical and pre-clinical imaging.
As the head of the Biomedical Translational Imaging Centre (BIOTIC), Dr. Beyea takes a highly interdisciplinary approach to medical imaging. Strategically located in Halifax’s largest hospitals, our infrastructure ranges from clinical 3T MRI and MEG, to pre-clinical MRI, PET, SPECT and CT. Students interested in interdisciplinary research projects, particularly in the areas of functional brain imaging and abdominal/pelvic cancer imaging, should contact Dr. Beyea about ongoing research opportunities.
