As one of a few facilities in the country with a 7 Tesla MRI scanner designed for both clinical and research use, the Stephens Family Clinical Research Institute at Carle has expanded research collaboration with the University of Illinois to form the Carle Illinois Advanced Imaging Center. This partnership elevates the quality of care by offering this innovative technology to patients.
At Carle, we're not just asking questions, we're leading the quest for new solutions. With innovative research that's turning “what if” into what comes next.
The 37,000-pound magnet for the Siemens Healthineers MAGNETOM Terra 7 Tesla (7T) MRI scanner arrived to its new home at the Carle Illinois Advanced Imaging Center in 2020.
