The Molecular Imaging Core provides comprehensive services for non-invasive imaging with a 7 T Magnetic Resonance Imager (MRI) and a MicroPET (Positron Emission Tomography). These instruments can be used to image small animals, biological tissues, phantoms, appendages of human subjects, and many other samples.  Our services include:

  • Consultation on development of imaging protocols, (e.g., choice of
    imaging modalities/techniques most appropriate for a project)
  • Assistance with experimental design and submission to the IACUC
  • Preparation/monitoring of animals prior to and during imaging
  • Quantitative analyses of images obtained with the 7T MRI,
    MicroPET and other devices.
