Function: The In-Vivo Imaging Core provides imaging services for clinical trial, observational and preclinical studies. The core also provides radiochemistry support for molecular imaging. Currently, the Imaging Core is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging systems, including 3T MRI scanners, PET-CT scanners, CT scanners, Bruker 9.4T preclinical PET-MRI scanner, a Medical Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facilities. Highly skilled faculty and staff are available to assist with research study designs. We are located at the Research 2 building, Goodman Hall, and neuroscience building.
Features: MRI: T1-weighted imaging, T2-weighted imaging, T2-FLAIR imaging, diffusion MRI, IVIM MRI, functional MRI, susceptibility-weighted imaging, myelin imaging, arterial-spin labeling (ASL) MRI, dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI, dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) MRI, chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) MRI, ultrashort echo time (UTE) MRI, phase contrast imaging, MRI spectroscopy, GABA spectroscopy, glu/glx spectroscopy, P31 spectroscopy, proton density fat fraction (PDFF) and more.
PET: Tau imaging, amyloid imaging, metabolic imaging, perfusion imaging, prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) imaging, neuro-oncologic imaging, dopamine imaging and synaptic density imaging.
