The Cancer Imaging Shared Resource (CISR) provides access to turnkey optical image acquisition and analysis technologies.
CISR also offers a developmental component to evaluate and initiate new research projects, and provides access to a range of approaches for small animal experiments, including in vivo bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, PET/SPECT imaging, and micro CT imaging.
CISR also offers image analysis, and acts as a central clearinghouse to consolidate and standardize state-of-the-art image processing and analysis routines. The core also provides experimental design and operator expertise for small animal cancer imaging and spectroscopy on a 7T Bruker magnet owned and maintained by The University of Arizona.
