The mission of the Dynamic Imaging Science Center (DISC) is to better understand the science of human movement in health and disease, through the development and use of non-invasive imaging. The facility operates a high-performance 0.55 Tesla whole-body MRI scanner, with a wide range of physiological monitoring systems that can be utilized simultaneously with imaging. Current projects include the imaging of the upper airway vocal tract during speech production, swallowing, and sleep; imaging movement of joints such as the wrist; and cardio-pulmonary imaging.
Equipment and services include: The Center will provide MRI scan time on a 0.55 Tesla low-field scanner (billed hourly). We will also provide MRI data archiving and retrieval for raw data and reconstructed images. This will be billed per scan, and by Gigabyte for unusually large datasets.
