Imaging Fees

The Imaging Research Core offers a multi-tiered rate structure. The full rate is applied when Core staff conduct the imaging scan and provide the data to the researcher. Discounts are available to individuals who have completed a Core-approved training program for use of specific equipment (50% weekdays 9AM-5PM; 90% nights and weekends). There is a 12-hour cancellation policy for all services within the IRC.  Learn how to complete your training.

Please contact us (ccir@case.edu) when planning the budget for a new study.

Radiochemistry Synthesis Fees

The Imaging Research Core Offers radiochemistry synthesis to support PET scan studies. We provide standard synthesis of labeled compounds as listed below and can also provide labeling of additional precursors depending on your study needs. Please contact us (ccir@case.edu) if you are interested in discussing additional radiochemistry synthesis services and when planning the budget for all new studies.

Radiolabeled Compound Quantity, mCi Cost/run, $ Approx.
# Animals/Run**
[11C] acetate 20 700* 4 mice
[11C] choline 20 700* 5 mice
[11C] methionine 20 700* 5 mice
