Our Research Facilities
We perform our research at several sites in our health care system:
The Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research (UCAIR) at the Imaging and Neurosciences Center
The majority of our Principal Investigators are housed at UCAIR, and in addition to office space for their research groups, this facility includes an animal preparation lab, two 3-Tesla MRI scanners, a pre-clinical PET-CT scanner, and a custom coil manufacturing lab.
Neuroimaging and Biotechnology Laboratory at the Biopolymer Research Building
Micro PET-CT at the Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building
Molecular Imaging and Radiopharmaceuticals at the Huntsman Cancer Institute
Our molecular imaging program includes an in-house cyclotron and radiochemistry group, PET-CT, Micro PET-CT, and SPECT-CT scanners.
University of Utah Hospital, Clinical Neurosciences Center (CNC), University Orthopaedic Hospital, VA Hospital
We conduct research on several of our high-end clinical CT and MR scanners throughout our system, and our clinical and translational research of course involves patients and technologies in our clinical areas. What's more, our interventional radiology teams conduct clinical care and research in the CNC, HCI, and University of Utah Hospital.
