MRC: KI MRI Center Core Facility 


The KI MRI Center is a core facility that aims to catalyze novel and translatory research using MRI. We offer services for academia, clinicians, clinical trials and industry in close collaboration with the Department of Neuroradiology at Karolinska University Hospital. We support all types of MRI studies in humans, ranging from small single-center projects to large-scale international multi-center studies. We also offer specialized services for large animal models as well as ex vivo imaging. A special focus is on offering MRI suitable for multi-modal integration such as CT, PET, EEG and MEG.

Our full-service facility spans across the two sites and offers imaging capabilities suitable for a wide variety of preclinical research and clinical applications. We provide full-service operations with highly skilled radiographers and physicists but also provide free MRI driver’s license courses for users to perform scanning independently and educational seminars to enhance the skillsets of the MRI community.

1, In Solna, we are located at BioClinicum, floor 4, with a state-of-art 3 Tesla GE SIGNA Premier system wide bore gantry and high-performance XT gradients that is available 24/7 for research purposes.

2, In Huddinge, we are fully integrated in the hospital and offer scanning on a next-generation clinical 7 Tesla Siemens MAGNETOM Terra.X, the first of its kind world-wide. This unique ultra-high field scanner also offers cutting edge gradient performance (130 mT/m at 250 T/m/s), parallel transmit as well as deep learning-based acceleration and denoising for improved image quality. This new scanner can be used to achieve micrometer resolution in vivo and capabilities for unprecedented microstructural imaging and layered fMRI.

The KI MRI Center Core Facility also offers a full-service lab for drawing blood and investigating psychophysiology (EDA, PPG, Eye-tracking) along with standardized image post-processing and data storage facilities with cluster computing for data analysis.
