The Magnetic Resonance
Imaging and Spectroscopy Center (MRISC) is a service center
supporting basic and clinical research at the University of
Center includes an advanced 3T Siemens Magnetom Trio scanner
with high performance gradients, echo-planar whole body imaging
and multinuclear spectroscopic capabilities for both human
and animal studies. There
are also computing facilities, electronic and fabrication
shops, and a multi-user laboratory available to support magnetic
resonance and spectroscopy studies.
Scientific and technical personnel are available to
help in developing MR sequences and procedures as well as
to help with image processing analysis.
Succinctly stated, the Mission of the Center is to
support MRI and spectroscopy research at the University.
We have established three specific goals to accomplish
facilitate research use of advanced MRI and spectroscopy
instrumentation by students and faculty.
This includes the active recruitment of new users
and the development of new applications.
continue to upgrade and improve the instrumentation and
software in the Center.
provide the best user-oriented research support services
at the lowest costs possible, consistent with maintaining
