Center for Magnetic Resonance Imaging & Spectroscopy


Established in 2002, CAMRIS enters its 12th year of service to the University of Pennsylvania community. We continue to respond to a rapidly growing MR Research environment. Internal Radiology Groups, outside researchers, and pharmaceutical companies have need to access Magnetic Resonance scanners and expertise of the MR department. The demand has become so great that a systematic, monitored, service oriented approach is appropriate.


The overall mission of CAMRIS is to provide oversight in the responsible use and application of Magnetic Resonance in research through leadership, education, and guidance. These principles are manifest in the development of new research and collaborations inside and outside the Radiology Department which can translate into advanced clinical techniques; training in safe and efficient use of this investigative tool and dissemination of current, accurate and evolving MR Technology; scheduling upgrades of MR Systems and facilities; scheduling systems operations and personnel within the MR department; and receiving and acting on recommendations pertaining to the administration of CAMRIS Facilities.
