Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Bringing University clinical and technology experts in biomedical engineering, radiology, and magnetic resonance imaging together with industry.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful, versatile diagnostic tool and one of the leading imaging techniques available to clinical medicine. Cutting edge developments in MRI and spectroscopy at the University of Minnesota are advancing healthcare diagnoses, allowing physicians to more precisely identify the best options for treatment and intervention in a wide range of diseases, including Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Center for Magnetic Resonance Research
The Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) is home to the world’s largest and most powerful human imaging magnet: a 10.5 Tesla magnet capable of delivering the sharpest images ever seen through magnetic resonance imaging technology.
Research at CMRR spans many fields, including brain function, neurological diseases, and cardiac imaging. CMRR is a key collaborator on the Human Connectome Project (HCP), an NIH-funded initiative to construct a map of human neural connectivity; CMRR is contributing to research across four age groups in the HCP Lifespan Project.
