Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center

Overview

The Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC) is a multidisciplinary and multimodality (MRI and MicroPet/SPECT/CT) based research facility within Einstein that is dedicated for clinical and basic research. The center supports both human MR Imaging and Spectroscopy and animal MRI PET/SPECT and CT research, including structural, functional, physiological, molecular, spectroscopy and chemical shift imaging. The center is staffed by professionals with MRI and uPET technical, image analysis, clinical and technological expertise. The facility includes patient interview, preparation and recovery facilities and a full range of patient stimulus and monitoring technology.
