Center Description

The Citigroup Biomedical Imaging Center (CBIC) at Weill Cornell Medicine is a state-of-the-art 15,000 square foot research facility housing the Biomedical Imaging Core Facility of the College. Major equipment includes two 3.0 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) system; a 7.0 Tesla/30cm bore pre-Clinical MRI/MRS system; a combined positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) system; a pre-clinical MicroPET/SPECT/CT system; a multispectral optical imaging system, a pre-clinical ultrasound system, a medical cyclotron facility for production of radiotracers; and radiochemistry laboratories for ligand synthesis. The center has been carefully designed to facilitate complementary use of all imaging modalities.
