Imaging Equipment and Support

Facilitating Imaging Studies for Preclinical Research

We offer state-of-the-art in vivo imaging technology and infrastructure to support basic and preclinical studies. Our imaging options include ultrasound, bioluminescence and fluorescence optical imaging, MRI, multiphoton fluorescence microscopy and micro-CT. We are happy to consult at every step of your project, as well as provide imaging equipment training and study design, imaging and post-processing services.

Additional imaging resources are available through the Translational Bioimaging Core, or TBIC, which partners Fred Hutch Preclinical Imaging core with the University of Washington Department of Radiology to support imaging research for members of the Fred Hutch/UW Cancer Consortium.

All Fred Hutch preclinical imaging users have access to the state-of-the-art research preclinical imaging capabilities through the Fred Hutch-UW TBIC. TBIC provides access to imaging equipment that is available at Fred Hutch as well as UW.

Imaging Equipment

Expand All
Ultrasound

Our ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic intravital images of organs, tissues and blood flow for applications including tumor monitoring, guided injections and targeted therapy treatments. Available for assisted and unassisted imaging.
