The major imaging modalities available at the five VBIC Nodes are shown in the map above.
VBIC encourages use of all its facilities by external parties and strongly supports researchers in the creation of multimodal imaging projects (that is the use of multiple pieces of imaging equipment at one or more VBIC node as part of the experimental design).
The use of all facilities is offered at very competitive rates. Expert staff can assist new users with study design, equipment set-up, data interpretation and analysis, publication and discussion of future projects. There are also possibilities for full scientific collaborations.
The equipment available through VBIC and its partners includes:
Human, large and small animal MRI systems
Human and small animal PET-CT scanners
Large animal DEXA
Animal confocal endomicroscopy
