Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility



The activities include the set up of the service/instrumentation/animal models for MRI.


The availability, in this platform, of three state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imagers allows to perform different kinds of experiments:

  1. Oncology -> Imaging on Transgenic and Xenografts models (tumor growth, apoptosis, angiogenesis, drug efficacy evaluation)
  2. Cardiovascular pathology -> Imaging on Transgenic and induced pathological models (plaque imaging , angiography, perfusion )
  3. Cerebral pathology -> Imaging on induced pathological models (stroke, glioma , angiography, perfusion, EAE )
  4. Inflammation -> Imaging on induced pathological models (arthritis, macrophage detection)
