CAMRI



This is the open-access wiki of the Core for Advanced MRI (CAMRI) at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). The wiki allows for easy updating and dissemination of the latest research methods and procedures in use at CAMRI and is distinct from the official BCM web page for CAMRI. Directions to CAMRI are here. To be added to the e-mail list for users, contact camri-staff@listserv.bcm.edu

NEW AND UPCOMING!!

The Trio Scanner (scanner 5) has been approved for its upgrade to a PRISMA FIT!! This is scheduled to start in May 2021.

Current labs: Please remove any of your lab equipment from the control room and scanner room before April 16th.


New scan rates:

  1. Normal scan rate:$525/hr
  2. Phantom scan rate: $175/hr
  3. $250/hr for level 1 training sessions
  4. $500/hr for level 2 training sessions

About CAMRI

CAMRI is one of BCM's [|Advanced Technology Cores]. CAMRI provides technology and services for advanced imaging studies of the function, physiology and anatomy of humans and large animals, with a special emphasis on blood-oxygen level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD fMRI) of the human brain.

The center houses a Siemens Magnetom Trio Scanner (will be upgraded to PRISMA FIT summer 2021) and a Siemens Prisma Fit (3 tesla field strength). A full complement of product pulse sequences are available for:

  1. High-resolution structural imaging
  2. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI)
  3. fMRI
  4. Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL)
  5. Single and multi-voxel magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).

Research sequences are available for specialized imaging applications.

For functional studies, equipment is available for:

  1. stimulation of the auditory, visual, somatosensory and gustatory modalities
  2. Infrared eye tracking of subject eye position
  3. Manual and vocal response recording.

Consultation is available for pulse sequence optimization and design, as well as for analysis. Users can scan with a MR technologist, or can elect to obtain training to scan independently.

CAMRI does not maintain its own database of scientists needing help or seeking positions, but we encourage users to visit the Gulf Coast Consortium Jobs Board http://jobs.gulfcoastconsortia.org/
