The strong partnership between Carle and the University of Illinois made the purchase of the Siemens MAGNETOM Terra 7 Tesla MRI system possible and brings the promise of advancements in disease detection and treatment that will impact patients’ futures.
Unique for a number of reasons, the Carle Illinois Advanced Imaging Center collaboration brings together the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University, with its rich history of MRI technology, and Stephens Family Clinical Research Institute, Carle’s research enterprise that dedicates itself to supporting new discoveries, to jointly address today’s critical healthcare challenges. These teams are supported by a full-time, on-site clinical scientist from Siemens Healthineers.
For over 30 years, Carle has partnered with the the University of Illinois to harness the full potential of our combined research capabilities. Working together, our organizations conduct research that's at the frontiers of modern science, bringing together clinicians and scientists to encourage tomorrow's discoveries, today.
