Supporting Biomedical Research

The UVM MRI Center was established in 2007 to support research at the College of Medicine, and around throughout the University. As a College of Medicine core facility, we specialize in functional MRI (fMRI) and neuro imaging; however, our state-of-the-art 3T MRI scanner is fully equipped and we have the ability to image almost any anatomical structure. In the fall 2013, the magnet was upgraded to Philips' most recent system platform. UVM became the first site in North America to operate the "d-Stream" MRI system, which supports unlimited coil channels and direct signal digitization at the receiver coil. The digitized signal results in improved signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) and in most cases (as a result) better resolution.

MRI

MRI Simulator

The purpose of the MRI simulator is to expose research subjects to the MRI environment prior to their actual MRI scanning session, to improve the quality of the data that is generated on the research magnet. The simulator can be helpful to researchers who are concerned that their subjects will experience anxiety or claustrophobia during the actual scan session. Schedule a time to use the simulator.

MRI

Research

Current research includes Measuring the Effects of CBT on Pain with Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a psychotherapeutic approach alters the dysfunctional emotional and sensory neural circuitry associated with chronic pain. Discover more research projects.

Brain Scan

Using the Center

The Center supports researchers with projects from multiple disciplines. MRI provides a valuable data point to researchers and we encourage you to take full advantage of our services.. Required documentation can be found here.
