A new, 30,000-lb. MRI magnet is installed at the UC Davis Health System Imaging Research Center.
   

The first ultra-high field scanner in the Sacramento area has been installed at the UC Davis Health System Imaging Research Center.

Cameron S. Carter, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the School of Medicine and director of the imaging center, said the new scanner allows for new research capabilities, including the ability to rapidly image brain function and obtain images of brain structure and chemical composition.

The MRI will be used to obtain images of activity in a normal, healthy brain as it solves problems, records memories and engages in other cognitive functions. Those images then will be used as a basis for studying images of brain function in patients with disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and autism.
