The Core for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CAMRI) is a state-of-the-art resource for the Houston research community that makes possible advanced imaging studies of the function, physiology and anatomy of animals and humans.  The center houses three cutting edge imaging systems:

  • One Siemens Magnetom Trio Scanners (3T). VB17 software. Up to 32 channel capabilities.
  • One Siemens Prisma Fit Scanner (3T) with 20 & 64 head Channel capabilities.

Our systems are equipped for advanced high resolution structural imaging, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional MRI, Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) and single and multi-voxel magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). They also contain auditory, visual and gustatory stimulation systems.
