Animal Imaging Shared Resource

Animal Imaging

Oncologic imaging is one of the fastest developing areas in cancer research because it answers multiple mechanistic and translational questions by noninvasive means and often in real time. The Animal Imaging Shared Resource (AISR) provides CU Cancer Center investigators access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise in small animal imaging systems to facilitate non-invasive imaging based research. We offer MRI, PET, CT and bioluminescence imaging. In addition, NMR-based metabolomics and irradiation services are available.

AISR is the only facility in Colorado that provides comprehensive expertise in small animal imaging. Our goal is to facilitate all aspects of pre-clinical and translational cancer research by providing technical and scientific expertise in the area of cutting-edge imaging. This will facilitate the initiation of high-quality animal cancer research by CU Cancer Center members.
