The Center for Biomedical Imaging houses a 3 Tesla Philips Acheiva MRI scanner for functional, structural, and spectroscopic imaging in human and animal studies.

Located in the basement of the Evans Biomedical Research Center (X-building) 650 Albany Street, the center provides MRI scan time, as well as expertise in all modalities of magnetic resonance imaging for the Boston University Community and for external researchers. Requests for scanner time should be emailed to Dr. Ron Killiany (killiany@bu.edu).

To be eligible for consideration, a copy of a previously approved IRB/IACUC protocol must be faxed  (617-414-2362) or scanned to a PDF document and emailed to Dr. Killiany.
