The BioMedical Imaging Lab was established in 1986 under the leadership of its current director, Thomas N. Hangartner, Ph.D. Starting out as a research laboratory with an interest in the development of new methods designed to non-invasively measure bone density, the laboratory soon got involved in the clinical application of the newly developed methods. This has been taking place through laboratory-initiated research projects and through participation in clinical trials to test new drugs for osteoporosis and related diseases.
