The mission of the BNI-ASU Center for Preclinical Imaging is to provide state-of-the-art imaging technology and expertise for researchers in the Phoenix area. Key to that goal is our 7-Tesla Bruker Biospec MRI scanner. The center is a joint effort between Barrow Neurological Institute and Arizona State University with the goal of providing a key piece of core technology and advancing science across the Valley.
Over the last decade, high-field MRI systems have opened the door to new discoveries in biology and medicine. Investigators can use this cutting-edge resource to examine, in vivo, both the anatomy and function in their preclinical models. In addition to advanced technology, the center also provides imaging expertise to help researchers develop and implement their imaging protocols.
