Welcome to the In vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Lab Website!

At the In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging (ICMI) Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), we have centralized multiple small animal imaging modalities including MicroSPECT, MicroPET, MRI, Optical imaging, MicroCT and Ultrasound together with a unit for probe development and a vivarium for the housing of animals in one laboratory. Different research teams collaborate in an interdisciplinary research effort which encompasses the development and validation of innovative core technologies, their applications in preclinical translational research and the introduction of these emerging technologies into clinical diagnostic imaging practice.

ICMI is an open access core facility and we invite people with great ideas to contact us …
