Preclinical 9.4 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images. It comprises a variety of tools ranging from high-resolution anatomical structure visualization to functional studies and even molecular-level description of metabolic events in the cell.

Our mission is to provide and develop methods for advanced imaging techniques as tools for future scientific breakthroughs


We offer a modern and robust state-of-the-art imaging MRI system and many years of practical experience in a wide verity of MR-applications. High-quality images of small animals and excised tissue can be obtained. The availability of a so-called cryo-coil further boosts the image quality for mouse imaging and small ex-vivo samples. Also, advanced MRI analysis of data is available upon request. 

Examples of studies that can be done: 

  • High-resolution anatomical 2D/3D imaging in vivo/ex vivo
  • Metabolic studies in vivo 
  • Visualization of stroke and repair in vivo 
  • Contrast enhanced MRI in vivo 
  • Cardiac imaging including contrast enhanced MRI in vivo 
  • Characterization of tumor development in vivo/ex vivo 
  • Investigation of human plaque ex vivo 
  • Monitoring of bleeding/micro bleeding in vivo/ex vivo


  • Bruker BioSpec Avance III
