Neurinfo, an innovative medical imaging platform

Plate-forme neurinfo © INRIA © Inria

Neurinfo is a technical platform offering imaging resources for the development and valorisation of clinical, methodology and technological research activities.

The Neurinfo platform concerns human imaging in vivo and neurocomputing, particularly within the context of nervous-system disorders. Set up at the Rennes University Hospital, it is open to a large community of medical and scientific users on a regional, national and international level.

What sets it apart: its magnet presenting a strength of 3 Tesla on its MRI, which enables a high magnetic field to be obtained, with a view to the better characterisation of tissues and an image offering better contrasting of the different anatomic components.

A team of researchers accompanies users in their clinical and/or methodological research projects.

The Neurinfo platform intends to build a centre of excellence for the field relating to the processing and management of medical imaging information, and for research and clinical neuroimaging, by 2015.
