Mayo Clinic's Center for Advanced Imaging Research aims to advance the science of imaging techniques such as MRI and CT to deliver more-accurate diagnostics and a better quality of care. The center's faculty use imaging strategies, such as noncathartic CT colonography, magnetic resonance defecography and more, to enhance patient care.
The Opus Building is home to the Center for Advanced Imaging Research. At 40,000 square feet, this state-of-the-art building is one of the largest in the country used exclusively for imaging research. Imaging equipment available includes whole body 1.5T and 3.0T MRI scanners. Multiple research laboratories are housed in the Opus Building, creating valuable collaborations to advance the science of imaging.
The Center for Advanced Imaging Research is supported by generous donations from The Opus Group, Gerald and Henrietta Rauenhorts, and a National Institutes of Health capital grant.
Mayo Clinic imaging researchers have a long history of developing cutting-edge applications for patient care, and they continue to discover new imaging technologies that lead to better understanding, prevention and treatment of diseases.
Students at Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and postdoctoral fellows can pursue medical imaging education at the Center for Advanced Imaging Research.
