FAQ: My study requires the use of a 3.0T MRI scanner. Can the HIRO help me with my study, or should I bring my study to the MRI Research Center?

The HIRO routinely assists the MRI Research Center’s (formerly known as the Brain Research Imaging Center, or BRIC) staff with clinical trials and research studies that involve the use of Medical Center resources (for example, scans that require gadolinium contrast agents or radiologist interpretations). If you have a study or clinical trial that involves patients (as opposed to healthy volunteers) and would like to utilize the MRI research scanner, you can contact the HIRO or the MRIRC. You will still need to complete the MRIRC’s study approval process, but HIRO personnel will be available to assist with some of the administrative components of your study.
