NeuroSpin is a research center built to develop and validate neuroimaging using ultra-high Magnetic Field headed by Dr. Denis Le Bihan, a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. It was opened on January 1st 2007. The center is recognized as a large infrastructure, for biomedical imaging, such as the CERN in Genève. It is a shared imaging facility with unique imaging devices,. An 11.7T MRI scanner for human will be installed in 2016, one of the first in the world.
The Institute of Biomedicale Imaging take part in three projects: CATI, INUMAC project and Human Brain Project.
Toutes les faits marquants de l'I²BM
6 renowned university centers (Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille, Grenoble, Paris Sud, Paris Centre), CEA, INSERM, CNRS, INRIA
FLI is organized into six regional nodes: Paris Sud (which includes CEA teams involved in this infrastructure), Paris Centre, Bordeaux, Grenoble, Lyon and Marseille. An additional transverse node is dedicated to data management and analysis. FLI coordinates its research by 4 axes: imaging agents, instrumentation, image processing, and interventional imaging.
The DSV teams involved in the FLI are part of the CEA-I2BM. They are attached to the Service Hospitalier Frédéric Joliot, NeuroSpin and MIRCen. They provide their expertise in the following areas:
