Molecular Imaging Core


The Molecular Imaging Core

The Molecular Imaging Core specializes in imaging small animals with MRI, CT, CT-SPECT, bioluminescence, fluorescence, and MicroPET scans, some of which can be combined in multi-modality scans. The Center has image analysis software and produces custom imaging agents. The core offers training so investigators can perform their own experiments, or the core can perform the analyses.

The Office of Research Core Administration supports research cores in the UVA School of Medicine which were established to make research more efficient and cost effective. The cores allow the presence of specialized instruments and personnel that individual laboratories cannot afford. Personnel in the cores provide expertise on the capabilities and limitations of their instruments and services and develop new applications for their techniques. The cores provide training and support for user operated instruments.
