Imaging Core Facilities

The BioMedical Engineering and Imaging Institute (BMEII) is responsible for providing support for all in-vivo imaging research at Mount Sinai. The Imaging Core Facility (the Core) is the backbone of BMEII and is responsible for coordinating, supporting, and executing imaging research at Mount Sinai.

The Core supports all the image acquisition, image analysis, scheduling, and performance of the proposed experiments. The Core has an extensive and expanding inventory of preclinical (large and small) and clinical research imaging facilities and equipment.

The Core’s resources are fully supported by user fees drawn from research grants, instrumentation grants, industry contracts, and agreements. Our core facilities are available for use to all qualified investigators from academic, medical, government, and industry laboratories.


Starting A Study

New projects using the Core’s resources are initiated with a project proposal. All projects are reviewed and approved by the Imaging Resources Management Committee (IRMC)
