Preserving brain health is integral to longevity, especially in an ever-growing aging population.
Healthy older and younger individuals demonstrate significant differences in the brain’s blood-oxygen response, as shown with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Sammons BrainHealth Imaging Center
Located at Center for BrainHealth, the Sammons BrainHealth Imaging Center is a one-of-a-kind facility completely focused on human brain imaging to measure changes in brain health and function. The design and field strength are optimized for functional MRI (fMRI), providing crisp anatomical detail and a signal-to-noise ratio that reduces distortion to facilitate the acquisition and interpretation of data.
