Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI)
Northwestern University’s Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI) was created to drive interdisciplinary research, bridging the gap between basic science and science-based medicine, with an emphasis on in vivo imaging. CAMI provides a wide range of imaging instrumentation and support facilities for molecular imaging of biological events, in intact organisms. We can also assist with medical image analysis and visualization.
- High field magnetic resonance imaging (Bruker 9.4T and 7T magnets)
- Preclinical nuclear imaging (MILabs U-SPECT+/CT and Mediso nanoScan PET/CT)
- Whole body bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging (IVIS Spectrum)
- Atomic force microscopy of live cells (operated by Scanning Probe Imaging and Development Facility)
- Surgery suite
- Free vivarium to imaging center transportation
- Licensed veterinary technician, specializing in preclinical imaging
- Image analysis and visualization, including the use of our 20 foot 3D wall
