Where BioImaging Research Center (BIRC),
Small Animal Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Spectroscopy Instrument (SAMMI)
at Coverdell Center, Room 110C
Contact Name Dr. Khan Hekmatyar
Contact Phone (706) 583-5549, (678) 970-6434
Attendees Graduate students, Postdocs, researchers and faculty
who are interested in small animal MRI imaging for research
Registration http://www.ccrc.uga.edu/world/symposium/mri1.php


Objectives: To learn and use MR imaging techniques for your research
and how these imaging systems are used to study mouse disease models
non-invasively and monitoring of treatments.
 
Our first small animal MR imaging introductory workshop will provide an overview on the state of the art small animal 7T Agilent MRI magnet. This will provide an opportunity to discuss and see the demonstration of how the MRI imaging of animals is acquired and analysis of the image data and basic animal handling methods. Following this first workshop, another one will be conducted in the beginning of fall for using some advanced imaging techniques such as cardiac gating, diffusion techniques, contrast and angiography and spectroscopic techniques.
Beginners who want to learn more about the basic science and methods of small animal imaging as well as individuals with experience in small animal imaging are welcome to join this workshop. The workshop is limited to a maximum of 10 attendees per session. If more people sign up another session will be held.
Proper one on one hands on training will be provided for researchers who would like to use our systems for their research.
