Functional Magnetic Resonance Service Services

The service has a Bruker BioSpec 7Tesla (30 cm internal diameter) fully equipped to perform in vivo and ex vivo MR Imaging and Spectroscopy. The service is equipped with volume coils for rodent whole body imaging and single voxel spectroscopy. Also it has a special set up for brain imaging using a phase array coil, optimized for functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).

Imaging modalities performed by MR facility:
  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
  • Anatomic Spin Eco (SE) and Gradient Eco (GE) images weighted in T1, T2 and spin density images
  • Diffusion weighted images (DW), apparent diffusion coefficient map (ADC) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI)
  • Spin Echo and Gradient Eco 3D images
  • Angiography
  • In vivo localized spectroscopy
  • Perfusion weighted brain imaging

  • Brain activity
  • Morphometry
  • Angiography
  • Tractography
  • In vivo brain metabolism
  • MEMRI (manganese enhanced MRI)
  • Evaluation of animal models of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Evaluation of animal model of cerebral ischemia
  • Neurotoxicity and neuroprotection
Transgenic animal characterization
