New “set it and forget it” MR Imaging rate (5/10/2017) - The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging is pleased to introduce a new “set it and forget it” rate of $80/hour for MRI of samples that require long scans, but relatively little setup time. Users no longer need to schedule these samples late in the day to take advantage of after-hours rates. This will improve scheduling […]
CAMI researchers present placenta imaging data at ISMRM (4/30/2017) - Alex Waters and Chad Haney presented data on placenta imaging with MRI at the 25th annual International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. The work is part of an ongoing collaboration with Kelly Mayo (Molecular Biosciences), Michael Fritsch (Pathology), and Tom Meade (Chemistry). The work was well received, and has important implications for understanding ways […]
New service: Bone Mineral Density imaging (5/13/2016) - CAMI has recently added a new service, bone mineral density imaging using microCT. Using a new hydroxyapatite phantom from QRM, we can now calibrate microCT images to quantitatively measure bone mineral density. This technique is especially useful in preclinical studies of bone regenerative medicine, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and skeletal phenotyping.
New animal monitoring systems in CAMI (3/7/2016) - CAMI is pleased to announce the installation of new MRI-compatible animal monitoring systems from SA Instruments, generously funded by NU’s Office for Research. The new animal warming system with integrated feedback control should result in significant increases the stability of animal temperatures during scanning, and the fiber-optic temperature monitoring system will be more accurate and […]
The new rat coil is here! (11/10/2015) - CAMI has received the quadrature rat body MRI coil generously funded by Northwestern’s Office for Research. We are excited to report that we are seeing significant improvements in rat anatomic imaging.
