Launching the 7 T for Clinical Scanning and Future Research Studies

Please save the date for a presentation by Professors Jeff Moore, director of the Beckman Institute, and Andrew Webb, director of clinical imaging research at the Stephens Family Clinical Research Institute, Carle Foundation Hospital

Carle and the University of Illinois are partnering to bring a MAGNETOM 7 Tesla (7 T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner to the community and campus for clinical scanning and research studies. The scanner is to be located in Carle’s Heart & Vascular Institute and 50% of the scanning time is dedicated to Illinois researchers.  The 7 T is a campus-wide shared resource, managed under the Biomedical Imaging Center at Beckman.  We are currently hiring staff to support the scanner and we are eager to build a user base by working with interested faculty on campus and by recruiting faculty whose research will be enabled by the 7 T MRI scanner, which we expect to be operational by October 2020.
