(This site is best viewed using your monitors highest resolution setting.) The UVM MRI Center is a research-only facility that specializes in functional 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 College of Medicine Core facility that supports researchers with projects from across multiple disciplines. Some of our projects 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 FFE. Our 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 when proving a hypothesis and we encourage you to take full advantage of our services.
We welcome new investigators and new research studies, so please contact us at: 802-847-4117, if you have a study that you think would benefit from MRI imaging.
