The UVM MRI Center is a research dedicated facility that specializes in functional, quantitative, and static brain imaging. We have a full complement of multi-channel, parallel imaging "SENSE" coils for cardiac, orthopedic, abdominal and all anatomic regions of the body.
The UVM MRI Center is a Larner College of Medicine core facility that supports researchers from across the University. Many of the projects we support include the following techniques: pseudo continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL), functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and cartilage and ACL assessment with 3D T1w TFE. The MRI group has recently developed improved methods for using T1rho contrast to image the brain and other structures. We have also developed the ability to image rats and mice and we are able to accommodate a limited number of such projects. MRI provides a valuable data point to researchers and we encourage you to take full advantage of our services. The MRI Center is staffed by ARRT licensed technologists with over 40 years of combined MRI experience, and we have two on-site MRI trained physicists, who are available to assist you in the design and implementation of your research project.
We welcome new investigators and new research studies, so please contact us at: 802-847-4117.
