Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Food Safety Research


CFSAN received from the NIH a MRI system capable of 3-dimensional, non-invasive imaging of lab animals, raw and processed foods, packaged foods, and fruits and vegetables. This plan is designed to establish a functional MRI facility and to develop cross-cutting, mission-related projects that will provide scientific support to help resolve regulatory issues.
