An NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center
The Small Animal Imaging Core Shared Resource currently supports nuclear (PET, SPECT), X-ray (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) and optical (bioluminescence and fluorescence) imaging in small animals to investigators at City of Hope.  All experiments conducted must be performed according to approved protocols (i.e. IACUC and RSO).

How to Acknowledge the Small Animal Imaging Core

If you’ve used our services for publications, presentations, grant applications, media releases, or any other form of media, it is extremely important to acknowledge the Small Animal Imaging Core to demonstrate our involvement in the research of many laboratories to continue funding support. As a courtesy, we also request that you inform us of the publication of any images created by the Small Animal Imaging Core.

Authorship should be considered when intellectual contributions are made by staff/scientists from the Small Animal Imaging Core.
