The Advanced MRI Center is in the Medical School, Room SA-107L
The Advanced MRI Center, in the Center for Innovative Imaging and Intervention (CI3), is a research core facility providing the latest magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy capabilities to scientists, clinicians, government and industry. Technical and clinical expertise for collaborative research is also provided.
The Center’s specialized techniques are able to elucidate functional, physiological and biochemical information from all organs of the body. This enables physicians to make better decisions regarding patient care.
Additionally, researchers are better able to understand the mechanisms of diseases such as lung and heart disease, cancer, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, back pain and injuries, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disease and depression. This facilitates the development of new therapies that can be safely and continuously evaluated throughout patient treatment.
