Small animal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not just used to inspect the brain and neurological system. It is a new type of high-tech imaging in recent years. (MRI) can be used for almost any part of the animal body tomography. The MRI data is more authentic and credible as the same group of test subjects were recorded at different time, it tracks the movement and change of the same target. The technology has been increasingly widely used in all areas of preclinical disease research, such as Cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, inflammatory diseases, immunology, stem cells and etc.
