Open Resources for Advanced Imaging Research

CAI2R provides MRI reconstruction code, RF simulation tools, image analysis software, and image datasets.

We also offer RF hardware.

To enable and encourage innovation throughout the field of biomedical imaging, we openly share advanced research resources. Many resources can be downloaded through this website; Some are hosted on dedicated micro-sites or maintained on version-controlled repositories, such as Github.
