Imaging and Computational Core Resources

Core Summary

The backbone of the Martinos Center is the Martinos Technology Core, comprising Imaging and Computational Core resources. The Imaging Cores include the MRI, MEG and Optical Imaging Cores, with an extensive and expanding inventory of state-of-the-art imaging facilities and equipment, including related laboratories and testing rooms. The Computational Core oversees data processing, computational infrastructure, software and hardware issues. Together, the Imaging and Computational Cores develop and provide state-of-the art biomedical imaging and image processing technology and techniques to the Center's research faculty and user community.

The Core resources are fully supported by user fees drawn from research grants, instrumentation grants and industry agreements. The core facilities are available for use to all qualified investigators from academic, medical, government and industry labs. While the mission primarily involves research and development, the Core also provides a clinical MEG service to the hospital (MGH). A clinical MRI service is not available.
