Welcome to the Center for Imaging Science (CIS), a multidisciplinary research center housed in the FIU Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED). With an emphasis on functional neuroimaging research, the CIS was designed to support an integrated community of investigators at the forefront of imaging science in the College of Arts, Sciences & Education; the College of Engineering & Computing; and the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work.
The CIS includes a research-dedicated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility that supports a 3T Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma. This MRI scanner is equipped to run the Human Connectome Protocol, which entails state-of-the art multiband data acquisition, advanced motion correction (PROMO), EPI distortion correction (EPIC), ultra-fast data acquisition facilitating HARDI and high-resolution, sub-second TR EPI acquisition.
The 3,178-square-foot MRI Facility is located at 130 PG-5 on FIU’s Modesto Maidique Campus.
