Department of Radiology

Our unique core facilities support research imaging needs across basic, translational and clinical programs, while serving as a catalyst for collaboration

Exceptional Facilities

The Department of Radiology, in collaboration with the Abramson Cancer Center and the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, stewards a complete array of imaging cores, serving investigators across the University of Pennsylvania Campus.

Cyclotron interior

Our cores include facilities that support small animal imaging through human studies. Nearly every modality is represented, including PET, SPECT, MRI, CT, US,  and optical imaging. Several unique features of the cores include a robust radiopharmaceutical production facility, hyperpolarization systems to support animal and human subject research, and a 7 Tesla MRI facility for human studies.

Center for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging Services (CACTIS)

The Center for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging Services (CACTIS) establishes the policies and procedures for the research use of CT scanners.

Center for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (CAMRIS)

PET Center

Established in 1975 to study human brain function, the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Center at the University of Pennsylvania was one of the first PET research facilities in the country.

RADCORE

RADCORE is designed to oversee the Radiology Research Coordinators and research being conducted within Penn Radiology and to build a network of radiology researchers.

Small Animal Imaging Facility (SAIF)

The Small Animal Imaging Facility (SAIF) is a core facility of the University of Pennsylvania and provides multi-modality radiological imaging and image analysis for cells, tissues, and small animals.
