The University of Melbourne Siemens Magnetom 7Tesla Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner is one of only two in Australia. This state of the art scanner provides unprecedented image quality allowing acquisition of non-invasive structural, functional and molecular information at exquisite spatial and temporal resolutions.

Research studies on the 7T continue to be primarily neuroimaging focused, however the node has expanded applications with an increase of non-brain studies, given exemplary new functionality with the eye and cervical spine coils, and the flexibility of the knee coil to study wrists and other peripheral limb sections.

Fast Field Cycling NMR WSU

Fast Field Cycling NMR

Whilst normal MRI instruments work at a fixed magnetic field, the FFC NMR enables relaxation measurements over a continuous range from the Earth’s magnetic field (~50 mT) of magnetic field strengths up 3T. This corresponds to proton resonance frequencies from 2 kHz to 128 MHz. Such capability has many applications including providing data for the rational development of MRI contrast agents. This will become ever more important as next generation clinical MRIs work at ever higher field strengths – field strengths at which present generation contrast agents perform poorly.

CRi Maestro II Multispectral Imaging System UWA

CRi Maestro II Multispectral Fluorescence Imaging and Unmixing System

“The CRi Maestro 2 is a high-performance multispectral imaging system designed for fluorescence macro-imaging of small animals such as a mice or rats.

The system is equipped with unique multispectral tunable optics and inbuilt multispectral imaging software algorithms which enables users to rapidly image and quantify more than one fluorescent signal within a mouse or rat in real time.

The system can be used for multiplexing and spectral unmixing enabling imaging of multiple fluorescent signals simultaneously together with the removal of any autofluorescence from an image.

  • In-vivo fluorescence imaging

  • In-vivo multispectral imaging and unmixing

  • Autofluorescence correction

  • Min image pixel resolution 25 micron

  • Heating stage and anaesthesia manifold

  • Solid-state liquid crystal tuneable filter

A researcher using the SkyScan micro-CT at UWA

The Skyscan 1176 system is a live animal X-ray microtomography system which enables high resolution (9, 18, or 35 um) 3D imaging of anaesthetised mice or rats using low X-ray doses. The system is able to provide morphological detail of tissues including bone, muscle, and fat while contrast agents can be used to produce 3D imaging of blood vessels, lymphatics, and gastrointestinal spaces.

Variable X-ray applied voltages and filters provide scanning flexibility to allow imaging of a wide range of samples from lung tissue to bone with titanium implants as well as non-animal specimens. The instrument caters for full body mouse and rat imaging and for scanning of distal limbs of larger animals such as rabbits.

  • Small animal in-vivo/ex-vivo imaging studies

  • Integrated physiological monitoring system (breathing and ECG gating)

  • Resolution 9, 18, 35 micron (pixel size)

  • Max scan diameter 68 mm

  • Max scannable length 200 mm
