SAIF provides consultation on experimental design, management, development and optimization of advanced instrumentation, maintenance of animals before, during and after imaging experiments, and analysis of data and preparation of figures.
The Small Animal Imaging Facility occupies more than 12,390 ft2 of space in three strategically located laboratories spanning MD Anderson’s “north” and “south” campuses. SAIF has three separate sites across campus to ensure access for the broadest scope of Cancer Center members. SAIF imaging laboratories are located at the North Campus, adjacent to and contiguous with the small animal vivarium, inside the South Campus Vivarium (SCV), and in South Campus Research Building #3 (3SCR). SAIF faculty and staff are available to support all aspects of imaging in preclinical cancer research, from proposal and experiment design through data acquisition, analysis, interpretation, and presentation. Currently, the MDACC has a variety of small animal imaging modalities, including PET, SPECT, MRI, bioluminescence/fluorescence, micro-ultrasound, image guided radiation therapy, micro-CT, and opto-acoustic imagers. Currently, SAIF has 23 unique pieces of imaging equipment optimized for small animals and a full complement of ancillary equipment for support of animals before, during and after experiments.
