Important Information

Early Morning Scans (8h-9h)

This slot is intended for some urgent studies (defined here) but is also available for booking of other subjects. When booking in this slot, please be aware that there is a chance that your subject might be bumped for an urgent research study. We estimate this occurs about 10%-20% of the time. We will do our best to accommodate your subject, but there may be occasions where they will need to be rescheduled.

Urgent Scans (13h-14h)

This slot is reserved for examinations that are approved as urgent studies (defined here). This is necessary since a number of approved studies have 24 h or less notice of the need to image a subject. To book one of these studies, please use the on-line book form and call Fran Raymond to request times on these days.

Weekend Research Scanning Sessions

The 3 T Diagnostic Scanner is available for research studies on the following Saturdays. Please use the on-line book form to request times on these days. Note that investigators will need to ensure that a Level 1 or higher trained person accompanies the subject.
