Our state of art high resolution MRI system is
- 7T Bruker 70/20 Biospec 20 cm MRI for imaging mice and rats or phantoms, advanced MRI and MRS techniques available for non-invasive morphological, physiological, and biochemical, and spectroscopic measurements. The 7T magnet allows MRI and MRS tissue imaging at a high level of resolution (50 microns) and several images in a second (high temporal resolution).
- Access for all users requires approval by ATIF operating committee. The approval process can be initiated by the submission of a project proposal to the lab’s contact.
- ATIF facility has well equipped surgery area for preparing the animals and a wide variety of supporting equipments, i.e. anesthesia machines, MR compatible physiological monitors (cardiac /respiratory gating /temperature monitoring units) and heating pads.
