We operate a diverse array of imaging modalities as a shared resource at Fred Hutch. As part of the Translational Bioimaging Core, or TBIC, a Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium agreement with UW, we collaborate closely with other research centers in the Seattle area to support investigators performing basic and preclinical research. Our imaging modalities capture physiological and/or anatomical data with a wide range of spatial and temporal resolutions and imaging depths, ensuring we can support any basic or preclinical study.
We offer training for researchers to operate most equipment independently. We also image for researchers and offer consultation services in data analysis, research design and troubleshooting.
Assisted means that a member of the Preclinical Imaging team can image for you. All instruments are available for assisted imaging. Scheduling is made based on availability.
Unassisted means you can perform the imaging yourself after completing necessary training. All instruments except the MRI and micro-CT are available for unassisted imaging. Our Facility Online Manager system is used for all scheduling.
We use the Facility Online Manager, or FOM, for all our instrument scheduling. Reservations can be made up a month in advance. Learn more about FOM:
We know many people don’t have imaging experience! We have developed many resources and offer various trainings for instrument operation and data analysis consulting to help make imaging more accessible for everyone. Reach out to us at email@example.com to learn more.
Consult the chart below and reach out to us with any questions. We are happy to consult with you to help you optimize your research.

Our involvement in the TBIC allows for shared use of instrumentation such as PET/CT across the different facilities. Learn more about the imaging instruments available across the TBIC consortium.
Preclinical Imaging core staff will work with you to coordinate the necessary IACUC protocols and transportation to complete these types of studies.
