Quantitative Image Processing Center

QUIPCThe Quantitative Image Processing Center (QUIPC) group at UCSF focuses on bringing you the latest image processing technologies. We provide comprehensive image analysis and data management services, for your clinical and pre-clinical research needs. This including reformats, registration, segmentation, ROI analysis, image post-processing for parametric data (fMRI, DTI, T1, T2, T1rho), and novel algorithm development.

Clinical Services

QUIPC provides state-of-the-art quantitative image processing capabilities using FDA approved software, including co-registration, segmentation, ROI analysis, and RECIST measurements. Post-processing can also be pipelined for cohort or long-term studies, ensuring consistent and efficient image analysis for your research.  Clinical areas:
