Small Animal Imaging Core


The UMMS Small Animal Imaging Core was established in early 2008 to serve the UMMS and extramural research community by providing state-of-the-art small animal imaging. Single photon computerized tomography (SPECT), positron emission computerized tomography (PET) X-Ray computerized tomography (CT) and NIR optical imaging of small animals are available. Please click on “Brochure” to see our handout that will further identify the Core.
