Static external and internal images MRI Preparation CT Preparation Access to the Library

We are working to obtain as much imaging information on a given heart as possible: thus, when possible for each specimen in our library we would like to collect external images (fresh and preserved), internal endoscopic images, magnetic resonance images (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) images of the cardiac vasculature. The hearts are prepared to obtain the most ideal images with each imaging modality as described on the following pages.
