Duke Center for In Vivo Microscopy (CIVM) is an NIH/NIBIB P41 national Biomedical Technology Resource Center. We develop novel methods for preclinical imaging with important biomedical applications.

Our small animal imaging program includes MRI, CT, x-ray, ultrasound, confocal, optical, and SPECT, all at the highest possible spatial resolution. Set up a collaboration or service project, and see below for just some of our publications that share our data.
