The Functional MRI Facility (FMRIF) was founded in 1999 to serve the needs for functional brain imaging in NIMH and NINDS. FMRIF operates 5 human scanners: a Siemens 7T, three General Electric 3T and a Siemens 3T. Scanners are used 7 days a week, 10-14 hours per day for a total of more than 6500 scan sessions per year. Since 2000, there have been over 700 papers published by groups at the NIH using facility scanners and services, with more than 39,000 citations and a combined h-index of more than 100. This poster gives an overview of the FMRIF, it’s staff and investigators, operations and support, technology and equipment, and future plans.
