BRIC - BWH Research Imaging Core

The BWH Research Imaging Core (BRIC) provides a comprehensive research imaging service to meet the needs of investigators and research subjects using imaging facilities at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). A unique feature of BRIC is the complete anonymity of research subjects. Research image scheduling, image acquisition and image storage are all kept completely separate from BWH clinical Radiology systems. The BRIC provides the administrative infrastructure, customer service architecture and institutional support to promote investigative applications of imaging technologies.
