Sammons BrainHealth Imaging Center at UT Dallas
The Sammons BrainHealth® Imaging Center at UT Dallas is a one-of-a-kind research facility located at Center for BrainHealth. Our resources fully concentrate on human brain imaging to measure changes in brain health and function.
Research at the imaging center plays an important role in updating the way people think about the brain’s ability to adapt and grow stronger.
The facility will serve as an international hub for research scientists, partners — and even the medical community — to collaborate in the advancing understanding of brain health. It is available to researchers from UT Dallas and others in the community. Find more details in our brochure

APPRECIATIONOur state-of-the-art imaging facility is named in recognition of a transformational investment in the future of BrainHealth from Sammons Enterprises.
The 3-tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are specifically optimized for the acquisition and interpretation of rich research data and will serve to train the next generation of scientists – those who will be developing new analytics, new technology, and new approaches to create completely new visualization capabilities.
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.
Meet the Sammons BrainHealth Imaging Center Team: Andrew Wolfson, MRI technologist; Bart Rypma, PhD, director; Gonzalo Solis, MRI technologist; Angela Plata, administrative coordinator; and Sergey Cheshkov, PhD, research scientist.
