As part of the Translational Imaging Core at Houston Methodist, the scientists of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facility are ready to assist you with your clinical and preclinical imaging needs by offering services to help you design experiments, acquire complex images and perform clinical translational research studies. We use a state-of-the-art 70 cm wide-bore 3.0 Tesla whole body MRI scanner that is in immediate proximity to the positron emission tomography or single-photon emission computed tomography (PET/SPECT) facility, making it simple to facilitate high-throughput multi-modality imaging. The scanner software we use includes magnetic resonance spectroscopy, diffusion tensor imaging and cardiac imaging sequences.
