The Small Animal Imaging Facility extends the benefits of modern dignostic medical imaging systems to the studies of anatomy and physiology in small animals. The Facility currently features state-of-the-art Bruker BioSpec 7.1 T horizontal-bore MRI, General Electric EVS-RS9 micro-CT, Inveon Preclinical micro-PET/ micro-SPECT/ micro-CT and Visen FMT 2500 fluorescence tomographer scanners. All are equipped with supporting and monitoring hardware that allows a wide variety of imaging experiments, including longitudinal studies, to be performed on live animals and specimens. Imaging scientists, full-time imaging personnel, and animal support technicians are available for technical consultation and experimental assistance.
Currently the Small Animal Imaging Facility has setup a calendar for investigators to schedule appointments. We will soon to be moving to the Common Cores Scheduling. New as well old users will have to register themselves with the Cores administration before being able to schedule services. Please check back often for updates regarding the new scheduling system.
