Animal Imaging

One of the most extensive facilities of its kind in the world, the Animal Imaging Core Facility provides investigators Center-wide with unique capabilities for noninvasively detecting, localizing, and biologically characterizing primary and metastatic cancer cells in vivo in small-animal (rodent) models, including xenograft, transgenic, and knock-out tumor models. This is accomplished through noninvasive in vivo imaging techniques such as gamma camera imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography (PET) of radiolabeled tracers, transmission computed tomography (CT), optical (bioluminescent and fluorescent) imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS).

The facility consists of two divisions that are operationally fully integrated.
