Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI)

CAMI Home Page Order from 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
