CTI was created by Northwestern Radiology in Fall 2002 to promote imaging research at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. The primary research focus at CTI is cardiovascular, neuroimaging, and Small Animal Imaging.

In 2010, NeuroCTI expanded with the help of the Warren Wright donation to Psychiatry, to create a neuroscience laboratory housed in a 6,000 square foot space specifically designed for the multi-modality study of Neuroscience in children, adolescents, and adults. The NeuroCTI currently contains two identical state-of-the-art 3-Tesla scanners, a Neuroscan 64 channel MRI compatible EEG system that can also operate as a stand-alone system in the RF and magnetically shielded sound booth, a Brain Products 32 channel MRI compatible EEG system, an infrared navigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) system from Magventure with an MRI compatible coil and a mock scanner that is equipped with identical instruments to fully simulate the experience of being scanned.

CTI operations are overseen by dedicated research staff. We assist new investigators in getting started and add our imaging expertise to any project. We have fully trained MR technologists and can provide assistance with scanner operations, setup and troubleshooting.
