The MR center
The MR center is a core facility that handles the MR research capacity at the neuroradiology clinic. It is equipped with a 3 Tesla GE SIGNA Premier owned by Karolinska institutet thanks to a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in 2010.
This page will give you updates and information about MR center: organisation, wiki, courses, events, etc.
To all people scanning at the MR Center:
The recommendations from Region Stockholm applies: stay at home if you have disease symptoms, wear face mask, avoid close contact, wash hands often with soap and . At the MR center this means:
1 – Be sure that the participants are healthy and not presenting any symptoms for COVID-19 (fever, cough, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, sore throat, headache, loss of smell and taste, runny nose, nasal congestion) before they enter the MR centrum. If they or a member of their family have been tested positive for COVID-19 they should not participate in any study before 15 days from the test.
2 - Face masks are mandatory for the participant as well as anybody entering MR-centrum.
3 – One participant at a time in the MR-centrum, no group of people.
4 - Clean with disinfection solution everything that had been or will be in contact with the participants (MR scanner bed, button boxes, etc.).
After a yearlong hiatus, it is time to start up the KI MR Center fMRI seminar series again.
The first seminar in 2023 will be given virtually (Zoom) on Wednesday 15. February at 11.00. Click here to join the seminar.
The title of the talk is “Null models in fMRI data analysis”. In this talk, Professor Peter Fransson at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at KI will discuss the usage of null models in network analysis in a rather broad sense. Knowledge of the properties of different kinds of null models and how they can be generated is useful within several areas of neuroimaging research, e.g. in structural and functional fMRI connectome studies, MEG and EEG data analysis.
