Preclinical and Translational Neuroimaging

The UCI Preclinical and Translational Neuroimaging Center (PTIC) provides magnetic resonance imaging (MRI/MRS) services to all UCI campus researchers. The PTIC houses a 9.4T Bruker Biopsin Avance 2 MRI with a 30cm bore. Non-invasive imaging of in vivo and ex vivo biospecimens using standard, advanced and novel emerging techniques are available. Methods to visualize, characterize and quantify normal and pathologic processes in animal models, as well as tissue samples, can be undertaken. In addition, research specific MRI sequence development are available. Data analysis training, data storage and services can be arranged.
