Magnetic Resonance Research Center (Gruss MRRC) and MicroPET Facility

Overview

The Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC) is a multidisciplinary and multimodality-based research facility within the Department of Radiology and Einstein that is dedicated for clinical and basic research. The MRRC is staffed by professionals with MRI / MRS expertise in all aspects of imaging – clinical and research imaging, sequence development, and image analysis.
