The Fourth Biomedical Imaging Research Opportunities Workshop (BIROW IV) was held on February 24-25, 2006, in North Bethesda, MD. The workshop focused on opportunities for research and development in four areas of imaging: imaging of rodent models; imaging in drug development; imaging of chronic metabolic disease: diabetes; and image guided intervention in the fourth dimension-time. These topics were examined by four keynote speakers in plenary sessions and then discussed in breakout sessions devoted to identifying research opportunities and challenges in the individual topics. This paper synthesizes these discussions into a strategy for future research directions in biomedical imaging.
