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.
