The Biomedical Imaging Center (BIC) is an interdisciplinary, multimodal imaging facility that supports human and preclinical imaging research at the University of Texas and the wider community. The BIC spans 3 locations in the Norman Hackerman (NHB) and the Health Discovery (HDB) Buildings on the UT campus and hosts a range of systems for MRI, PET, CT and optical imaging. The Center accommodates both independent and assisted use (for human MRI and PET/CT) is on its instruments and provides in-house training in scanner safety and operation (for independent users). The facility also supports a range of task / response paradigms for functional MRI (fMRI) studies and provides back-end support for data archiving, management and common analyses.
