The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) core provides ONPRC investigators with equipment and assistance to perform MRI exams of sedated NHP subjects.
"MAGNETOM Trio is the first generation of true 3T whole-body 3T MR system. The largest diversity of iPAT-compatible coils combined with the standard 8 RF channels ensure the best 3T examinations for all organs."
"The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) core provides ONPRC investigators with equipment and assistance to perform MRI exams of sedated NHP subjects. As a satellite facility of the OHSU Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC), infrastructure and technical support exist to customize MRI investigations so that researchers can take advantage of the close similarity between human and NHP anatomy and physiology to develop new MRI research and diagnosis techniques and applications."
"The AIRC staff offer monthly safety training sessions to familiarize ONPRC staff and scientists with the potential hazards of working in the presence of an MRI system, with its associated large magnetic field. Additionally, for researchers that are knowledgeable of the MRI procedures to be performed in their research quarterly MRI operator training is available through the AIRC staff."
