Center for Infectious Disease Imaging (CIDI)

CIDI is a partnership between NIAID and Radiology and Imaging Sciences at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. It was established to perform basic science, translational, and clinical research on the imaging features of infectious disease. CIDI has partnered with the NIAID Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick, Maryland, to offer opportunities for investigators to apply advanced imaging technologies to infectious disease research.

Main Areas of Focus

  • To perform basic science, translational, and clinical research on the imaging features of infectious disease, including CT, nuclear medicine, MRI, ultrasound, radiography, and optical modalities
  • To provide subject matter expertise, technical support, education, and outreach while bringing together state-of-the-art imaging science with infectious disease research to enhance our understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of immunologic and infectious diseases
