Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (MRI/S)

The MagLab has state-of-the art facilities to conduct MRI/S, diffusion and in vivo studies at record-high magnetic fields.

In Tallahassee, we have vertical widebore magnets that are capable of performing MR microimaging for both in vivo, in vitro and materials applications. They are equipped with Bruker Avance spectrometers and widebore imaging gradients providing diameters up to 63 mm on the 21.1 T magnet.

In Gainesville, we have a 750 MHz (17.6 tesla) widebore (89-mm) system for microimaging and in vivo imaging and spectroscopy with a 600 MHz (14 tesla) standard bore (52-mm) system for microimaging. Both systems are Bruker Avance consoles. There are two horizontal scanners (4.7 T/33 cm and 11.1 T/40 cm) dedicated for animal imaging, and a 3 tesla human scanner for translational studies.

External users can utilize animal facilities and technicians at both locations.
