CMMI-Excellence in preclinical imaging

In Vivo Imaging

In vivo department focuses its activities on preclinical isotopic (PET, SPECT & autoradiography), X-Rays (µCT), magnetic resonance (MRI 9.4T & 1T), optical (BLI, FLI & CLI), and photoacoustic (MSOT) multimodal imaging approaches. It offers industrial and academic partners tailor-made experimental protocols which will be used to acquire and analyze images. This process will address scientific questions related to the morphology, as well as to the functional and the molecular level of small animal models. It proposes high technology up-to-date material as well as a dedicated animal facility linked to the imaging rooms.
