Description:

The Small Animal Imaging Shared Resource Facility of the Center for Biomedical Imaging provides state-of-the-art in vivo imaging capabilities to MUSC researchers.  The mission of this resource is to support the thriving and growing research environment in the cancer center and the university at large.

In vivo serial imaging of animal models of disease can provide information not easily obtained by other methods.  Additionally, with in vivo tracking of a disease process, the number of animals used in an experiment can be reduced by eliminating the need to sacrifice animals at multiple time points.  The advent of commercially available imaging devices capable of interrogating small animals is revolutionizing biomedical research and has opened up the field of molecular imaging. Our facility provides access to instruments and expertise to aid MUSC researchers in leading the way to advancing biomedicine.

Accessibility:

These services are available to any investigator.
