The Citigroup Biomedical Imaging Center (CBIC) at Weill Cornell
Medical College, completed in 2003,
is a state-of-the-art 15,000 square foot research facility housing the
Biomedical Imaging Core Facility of the College.
Major equipment includes a 3.0 Tesla magnetic
resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) system; a 7.0 Tesla/30cm
bore MRI/MRS system; a combined
positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) system; a
small animal PET system; a multispectral optical imaging system, a
cyclotron facility for production of radiotracers; and radiochemistry
laboratories for ligand synthesis.
The building has been carefully designed to facilitate complementary
use of MRI, PET, and CT studies.
