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 […]
bruker logo 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.
CAMI honored as top core facility (9/17/2015) - CAMI has been recognized as the top performing core facility in 2015 by the Office for Research. The Outstanding Core Facility Awards are given to core facilities scoring in the top 10% using a score based on grant submissions, publications, education and outreach, and user base. CAMI had the highest overall score, and was awarded […]
bruker logo Improved rat MRI coming soon to CAMI (9/3/2015) - CAMI has received funding from Northwestern’s Office for Research to purchase a quadrature rat body MRI coil. This will significantly improve our MR imaging capabilities in the rat abdomen and chest, and will benefit several major users. The coil has been ordered from Bruker, and will arrive in early October.
Congratulations to MRI & IVIS users Victoria Harrison & Christiane Carney (8/1/2015) - on the publication of their manuscript “Multimeric Near IR–MR Contrast Agent for Multimodal In Vivo Imaging” in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Their manuscript was selected as an Editors’ Choice publication in the July 22, 2015 issue. Victoria and Christiane used CAMI’s IVIS Spectrum and 9.4T MRI to test their multimodal Near IR-MRI […]
CLP Core Crawl 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 […]
Congratulations to MRI user Kirsten Viola (4/3/2015) - on the publication of her manuscript “Towards non-invasive diagnostic imaging of early-stage Alzheimer’s disease” in Nature Nanotechnology. As part of a collaboration between Prof. Bill Klein and Prof. Vinayak Dravid’s research groups, Kirsten used CAMI’s MRI systems to image iron magnetic nanostructures targeted to amyloid beta-oligomers, which may represent an earlier biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease […]
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.

bruker logo 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.
SPECT major equipment grant funded (6/26/2014) - CAMI is excited to announce that Prof. Ming Zhao’s NIH S10 equipment grant for a SPECT/CT scanner has been funded! The MILabs U-SPECT+/CT will be placed in CAMI, and is expected to be installed in early July of 2014 and will become available to users by late summer. Please contact Chad Haney if you are […]
