Imaging Core

The Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) is responsible for providing support for all in vivo imaging research at The Mount Sinai Health System.TMII Imaging Core is the backbone of the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute and is responsible for coordinating, supporting and executing imaging research at Mount Sinai including, neuroimaging, cardiovascular imaging, cancer imaging, nanomedicine (molecular imaging and drug delivery), and image processing in the preclinical and clinical settings.

The Core is fully staffed to support all the image acquisition, image analysis, scheduling, and performance of the proposed experiments.  The Core has an extensive and expanding inventory of preclinical (large and small) and clinical research imaging facilities and equipment, including ancillary support which encompasses exam rooms, imaging processing workstations, laboratories (wet lab space, cell and chemistry preparation and a radionuclear lab), animal preparation and holding rooms, and testing rooms.  The Core’s resources are fully supported by user fees drawn from research grants, instrumentation grants, industry contracts, and agreements.  Our core facilities are available for use to all qualified investigators from academic, medical, government, and industry laboratories. We do not offer a clinical imaging service.

Our current instrumentation and services include:

  • Human Imaging (3T MRI, 7T MRI, 3T MR/PET, CT)
  • Human Mock MRI
  • Human and Animal Imaging Peripherals
  • Human and Animal Anesthesia and Monitoring
  • Large Animal Imaging (3T MRI, 7T MRI, 3T MR/PET)
  • Small Animal MRI (9.4T, 7T)
  • Small Animal US
  • Small Animal Optical Imaging (Fluorescence, Bioluminescence and Near-infrared)
  • Dissecting Microscope with Digital Camera
  • Staff-Assisted Imaging (imaging technologists, nurse, etc.)
  • Imaging Processing and Data Analysis
  • Scheduling
  • Training
  • Consultation
