Radiology Image Processing Lab (RIPL)

The Radiology Image Processing Laboratory (RIPL) at UNM was established with the goal of facilitating translational research through the provision of state-of-the-art image processing tools for the intramural community. The laboratory is focused on quantitative image analysis and 3D printing for both preclinical and clinical research applications.
