New England Center for Stroke Research

Mission: NECSTR is a neuroradiology facility that offers the latest technology in image guided intervention to support University investigators in developing minimally invasive treatments.

     

  

NECStR has been fully operational since May 3 2007 with a special focus is on image guided interventions for minimally invasive treatment of vascular disease. The center’s expertise and resources enable animal modeling of vascular pathologies, 3D x-ray imaging, post acquisition image processing, rapid prototyping from medical imaging and image guided minimally invasive surgery. Although the center’s focus lies in cardiovascular imaging and intervention, previous work has included selective vascular drug delivery for cancer treatment and orthopedic device implantation.
