Small Animal Imaging Core

Core Summary

The goal of the Small Animal Imaging Core (Longwood Small Animal Imaging Facility) is to provide state-of-the-art small animal imaging services to researchers in the Longwood Medical Area of Harvard Medical School. These services include multi-modality imaging, advanced data analysis, image fusion resources, and a satellite animal facility for longitudinal studies. A detailed description of our instruments and services are provided at, and we welcome questions and comments.

We have solved the logistical problems of importing animals from other institutions and now have a streamlined system bring animals into the facility. Details are available under the Checklist and Directions pages of the site, including all necessary forms and permissions for transporting animals to our facility.

We want to make this a one-stop service for you. Simply bring us the animals, and we will take care of all anesthesia and imaging, and will assist you with data analysis and display. You will leave with all the data you need on a CD, DVD, or USB memory stick. We also have state-of-the art data analysis and fusion facilities to assist you as well.

If you have any questions or need more information, please call at 617-667-0277 or visit
