The UWCCC SAIRF is dedicated to providing innovative, state-of-the-art, affordable, noninvasive, high-resolution, in-vivo and ex-vivo imaging and radiotherapy support to UWCCC investigators, University of Wisconsin researchers, and industry.
The SAIRF provides access to both full-service and self-service equipment. Full-service equipment is completely operated by the SAIRF staff, from imaging agent injection to scanner operation. Self-service equipment can be operated by trained users. Image analysis training and guidance is offered for all equipment on a fee-for-service basis.
The biomedical community utilizes the SAIRF for mouse lower urinary tract imaging (MRI, µCT, CT/µSPECT).
