NHLBI Animal MRI Core
Wednesday, September 16, 2015 — Poster Session I
- SA Anderson
The AMRI Core performs magnetic resonance imaging of small animal models in the NHLBI. We work with investigators on the best approaches for the research model and goals. Training in MRI and data analysis is available and interested fellows may learn to perform MRI studies. Examples of imaging studies in the AMRI Core are: Cardiac imaging for heart function and anatomy; identification of myocardial infarct and scars; angiography and vessel wall including atherosclerotic plaque imaging; perfusion of skeletal muscle or tumors, and whole body imaging for identification of non-cardiac defects in mouse models. Core imaging studies are performed in the NIH Mouse Imaging Facility (MIF).
