In Vivo Biomedical ImagingServices
The In-Vivo Biomedical Imaging Core provides services and access to imaging equipment in two research buildings on the Indiana University School of Medicine campus. Highly skilled faculty and staff are available to assist with research study design, collection of imaging data, and data analysis.
The Research II building houses:
- a Siemens HR+ PET Scanner
- a Siemens Biograph PET/CT Scanner
- a GE 1.5T Signa MRI systems
- and a Siemens 3T Allegra MRI for human studies.
Also in Research II, small animal imaging resources include:
- the IndyPET II scanner
- an EVS RS-9 microCT scanner
- a Varian 9.4T/31 Horizontal Bore MRI
- a Varian 9.4T Vertical Bore MRI
- an Optosonics Small Animal Thermoacoustic Tomography system
- and a BERTHOLD NightOWL optical imaging system.
The Tracer and Contrast Agent Development program of the In-Vivo Biomedical Imaging Core is located in the Biomedical Research and Training Center building. This building houses:
- a CTI RDS Eclipse medical cyclotron
- radiochemistry laboratories
- synthetic chemistry laboratories
- and molecular biology and cell culture laboratories.
