The Nuclear Medicine Division
The Nuclear Medicine Division has four core academic radiology faculty positions, one fellow and one nuclear medicine physicist. The Nuclear Medicine Division is the academically focused division within mHealth Fairview Health System which oversees nuclear medicine clinical protocols, development and research. The division developed the MHealth Fairview Radio-Theranostics Center offering advanced therapeutics in a dedicated facility, first of its kind in Minnesota. There are 4 Siemens 64 SlicePET/CT scanners including Siemens Vision 600 Digital scanner. There are 3 Siemens Spect/CT scanners (6 and 16 slice ct), 2 Siemens Dual Head scanners, and a PetNet Cyclotron at CCIR for Ammonia Cardiac Imaging. UMN is one of the national Cardiac Sarcoid centers and performs cardiac FDG and Ammonia studies. Nuclear Medicine and the Radio-Theranostic Center is partnering with Oncology and numerous vendors for advanced trials in new diagnostic and therapeutic trials providing opportunities for Nuclear Medicine physician participation.

Center for Magnetic Resonance Research – CMRR
As a key part of the Department of Radiology, the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research is an internationally renowned center for ultrahigh field MRI (7 Tesla and above) with some of the most advanced MR 3 Tesla and 7 Tesla instrumentation in the world, and one of a kind 10.5 Tesla whole body scanner. CMRR focuses on development of unique magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and spectroscopy methodologies and instrumentation for the acquisition of structural, functional, and biochemical information non-invasively in humans, and utilizing this capability to investigate organ function in health and disease.
CMRR focuses on the significant advantages of extracting biomedical information using high and ultrahigh magnetic fields, and developing methodological and engineering solutions to challenges encountered by working at high frequencies in the human body, including the abdomen, corresponding to such high field strengths.
CMRR engages unique expertise in imaging physics, engineering, and signal processing, amplifying the contributions of each of these groups of scientists to conduct basic and clinical biomedical research. https://www.cmrr.umn.edu/
