MRI Facility

About Us

In May 2016, a new 3 T Siemens Prisma (whole-body) scanner was installed in the Medical School Research Building, purchased with funding from the Office of the Vice President of Research, the Office of the Provost, and the College of Medicine.

This system includes standard sequences for EPI BOLD, diffusion, perfusion imaging, and DTI. In addition to the 3 Tesla MR scanner, MRIF features (a) MRI simulator (“mock scanner”), to acclimate participants to the imaging environment and train them to remain still (critically important for pediatric and special populations); (b) high density EEG/ERP system; (c) full psychophysiology recording suite (BrainAmp Exg MR 16: record bipolar and peripheral signals (e.g. EOG, ECG, EMG, GSR - Galvanic Skin Response, etc.)); (d) eye tracker; (f) behavioral testing space; and (g) computer workstations, for data processing and analysis


The FSU Magnetic Resonance Imaging Research Facility is dedicated to education and research for technical advances in engineering, neuroscience and medicine. Our focus will be to use Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to understand the function of the brain and causes of brain disorders, developments in molecular imaging, as well as cardiac and neuro-imaging.
