Organization & Objectives

The Mouse Imaging Centre (MICe) at The Hospital for Sick Children was created as a unique resource and comprehensive imaging facility combining the latest state-of-the-art digital medical imaging technologies for the characterization of mouse functional genomics.

The goals of the Mouse Imaging Centre are:

  • To provide a variety of medical imaging technologies adapted to studying genetically modified mice. These technologies include magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, micro computed tomography (micro-CT), ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), and optical projection tomography (OPT).
  • To screen large numbers of mice for models of human diseases.
  • To image an individual mouse over time to observe development, disease progression and responses to experimental treatment.
  • To develop an exciting team of investigators with expertise in imaging techniques, computer science, engineering, imaging processing, developmental biology and mouse pathology.
  • To work by collaboration with researchers throughout the world.
