Small Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility

The Small Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility houses 9.4-T, 4.7-T, and 11.74-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems with magnetic field strengths significantly higher than those generally found in clinical systems. The result is enhanced spatial or temporal resolution for imaging and improved accuracy of resonance amplitude and frequency estimates for spectroscopy. Peripheral resources include animal holding and procedure rooms, a wet chemistry lab, an electronics lab and a climate-controlled room holding computer server and data archival devices. 

Services & Equipment

Experienced MIR scientists provide a full range of research services, from initial planning and implementation to data collection and analysis. The Small Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility is a cost-effective way to include preclinical MR imaging and spectroscopy in your research.
