About Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging

The Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging (CFMI) at Georgetown University Medical Center consists of faculty, research assistants, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students with expertise in structural, functional and molecular brain imaging. We combine brain imaging with behavioral methods to explore the neural mechanisms of thought, feeling, movement and perception and to explore the mechanisms underlying the acquisition of cognitive and sensorimotor skills.

CFMI provides state of the art neuroimaging on a Siemens Tim Trio. In August 2018, the scanner will be upgraded with the Prisma Fit and include a 32- and 64-channel head coils along with Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS) acquisition. Major techniques supported include functional MRI (fMRI), various types of diffusion imaging (DTI, DSI, and NODDI), high resolution structural scanning for morphometrics including voxel based morphometry (VBM) and cortical thickness (CT) estimation, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).
