CLP Core Crawl (7/10/2015) - Visit CAMI and see our new PET/CT this Thursday, July 17 from 3-5PM at the CLP Core Crawl! CAMI staff will be on hand for demonstrations of the 3D visualization wall, as well as tours showcasing our suite of imaging equipment. This is a great chance for to meet us, see our preclinical imaging equipment, […]
PET/CT added to CAMI’s preclinical nuclear imaging suite (7/10/2015) - CAMI has just added a new nuclear imaging modality; a positron emission tomography and x-ray computed tomography (PET/CT)imaging system. CAMI was the first facility to offer nuclear imaging for small animals at Northwestern when single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT) was added in August 2014. Both the PET/CT and SPECT/CT scanners offer sub-millimeter resolution with high […]
New IVIS Spectrum training videos from PerkinElmer (7/17/2014) - PerkinElmer has released a series of four detailed training videos that may be very helpful for users of the IVIS Spectrum, either as an introduction for new users or a refresher for existing users.

MRI workstations to be upgraded (6/26/2014) - CAMI’s MRI systems will receive an upgrade in the form of new control software (Paravision 6) and faster workstations, thanks to an internal equipment grant from NU’s Office for Research. The new software and workstations will allow more robust and efficient data collection, and an improved user experience.
Congratulations to MRI user Adam Preslar (6/26/2014) - on the publication of his new manuscript, “Gd(III)-Labeled Peptide Nanofibers for Reporting on Biomaterial Localization in Vivo” in ACS Nano. Adam’s work shows that novel Gd(III) labeled self-assembling peptide amphiphiles can be tracked with MRI over the course of several days.
