Research Support Facilities Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology has a highly productive, extensive and collaborative research program based on modern scientific disciplines. Our investigators are known for the advancement of imaging technology as well as for innovative methods in the interpretation of radiological images. There are ten research support facilities within Radiological Sciences, which is the research division of Mallinckrodt.

Center for Clinical Imaging Research (CCIR)

The Center for Clinical Imaging Research (CCIR) is a centralized,  hospital-based facility that provides access to advanced imaging resources and support for clinical investigators. The CCIR provides the latest in advanced imaging technologies, equipment, and expertise to support basic and translational clinical research designed to improve the diagnosis and treatment of disease across diverse patient groups.

 

Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC)

The Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) provides the resources and expertise necessary to tackle any computationally intensive scientific project. The CHPC provides high-performance computing, direct access to high-speed and bulk storage, and technical support to the entire Washington University research community.

 

Central Neuroimaging Data Archive (CNDA)

The Central Neuroimaging Data Archive (CNDA) manages study data collected by the Washington University neuroimaging community. With its secure database, automated pipelines for processing managed data, and tools for exploring and accessing data, the CNDA supports multiple active research projects.

Clinical Research Lab (CRL)

The Clinical Research Lab (CRL) provides coordination services to support the basic and clinical research of Washington University investigators. Using advanced imaging and information technology systems, the CRL assisted in the training, design, execution, and analysis of basic and translational science.

 

Cyclotron Facility

The Cyclotron Facility provides PET isotopes, radiochemicals, radiotracers, and radiopharmaceuticals to the research and medical communities for use in research and clinical practice. In conjunction with its Radionuclide Production Laboratory and new, state-of-the-art Good Manufacturing Practice facility, the Cyclotron Facility continues a more than 70-year history of producing isotopes for medical and biologic research.

 

Magnetom Skyra Neuroimaging 3T MRI

The Siemens 3T Skyra system has been customized to acquire data (brain images) for the Human Connectome Project, an NIH-led effort dedicated to mapping the connections between different brain regions in a large population of healthy adults. Mallinckrodt radiologists play an integral role in the project, using the latest imaging technologies to detail the brain’s intricate networks.

 

MRI Facility

The MRI Facility provides a dedicated MRI scanner for clinical and non-clinical research involving outpatients and healthy control subjects, with a strong focus on brain imaging. Research done at the MRI Facility helps investigators to understand disease processes and then use that gathered data to support the development of new clinical treatments.

 

Neuroimaging Informatics Analysis Center (NIAC)

The Neuroimaging Informatics Analysis Center (NIAC) provides data management, processing and analysis, computing, and consulting to Washington University’s neuroimaging community.Our services enable the university's researchers to study virtually every aspect of the brain in normal and diseased states, including Alzheimer's Diseases, autism, stroke, depression, traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia and many other disorders.

 

Pre-Clinical Imaging Facility

The Pre-Clinical Imaging Facility provides an infrastructure for investigators to perform preclinical imaging positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) to facilitate research and discovery of diagnostic and predictive imaging biomarkers of disease.

Small-Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility

The Small-Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility offers a full range of research services, from initial planning and implementation to data collection and analysis. With its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, the Small-Animal Magnetic Resonance Facility provides a cost-effective way to include preclinical MR imaging and spectroscopy in research.
