Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation Group (BiiG)


The research of the Medical Imaging and Instrumentation Group (Biig) of the Bioengineering and Aerospace Engineering Dept. of the UC3M is mainly focused on medical imaging, including the development of new technologies, advanced reconstruction and postprocessing algorithms, and their practical application in the fields of CT, Nuclear Imaging, MRI and Optical Tomography. The strong mutidisciplinary character of the group makes it easier a close connection with real clinical and preclinical needs. Collaborations with Hospitals and biomedical research centers facilitate a fast validation of the results achieved, also enabling a fast transfer of results to the industry. Several devices developed have reached a world-wide commercialization.

The group has lead and is leading several excellence collaboration networks in Spain, such as the ‘Molecular and Multimodality Imaging Network’ or the ‘Hospital Technological Innovation Network’, as well as several Industry-Academia large consortia for technology transfer.

The available equipment for molecular imaging (CT, PET, SPECT, CT-PET, MRI, optical fluorescence tomography) constitutes one of the more complete settings at a national scale
