In October 2015, a new PRISMA MRI Scanner was installed on the UAB Campus.
The Civitan Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory (CFNL) is located on the first floor of UAB Hospital Highlands at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. It houses a research dedicated Siemens Prisma 3T whole body scanner for structural and functional brain imaging, an MRI preparation rooms and interview rooms for pre- and post-scan patient monitoring and testing, and a fully-equipped experimental suite for behavioral and physiological recording.
The Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma MRI Scanner offers a 3T whole body MRI platform for the highest quality MRI research. Its design delivers maximum performance under prolonged high-strain conditions. Unmatched 3T full body magnet homogeneity, XR 80/200 gradient coil, parallel transmit architecture for shaped excitation and B0 shimming, and at-the-scanner 64 channel receiver architecture. UAB’s Prisma is configured for neuroimaging with a 64 channel neuro coil and spectroshim spectroscopy shimming hardware.
Scans available: Functional (BOLD) MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Arterial Spin Labeling, MTC and many others.
