Distributed Biomedical Imaging Network (ReDIB)

The Advanced Infrastructure for Translational Imaging (TRIMA) is located in the Carlos III National Cardiovascular Research Centre (CNIC) in Madrid and it includes the following units:

Molecular and Functional Imaging Unit: optical microscopy and fluorescence services .

Advanced Imaging Unit: MRI, CT, PET, MRI/PET, ultrasound and optical imaging (fluorescence and luminescence 2D/3D). Nanotechnology lab, organic chemistry and radiochemistry. Preclinical and clinical areas.

High Performance Imaging Unit: High Content Screening (HSC).



The Platform for Molecular and Functional Imaging is located at the Center for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials (CIC biomaGUNE) in San Sebastián.

Available equipment includes: cyclotron, radiochemistry lab equipped with synthesis modules and quality control equipment, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, high-field MRI (11.7 and 7 Tesla), fluorescence imaging and dedicated animal facility for small rodents.

The infrastructure has been designed, built and equipped to tackle longitudinal and multimodal pre-clinical projects and to develop applications in the area of Preclinical Molecular and Functional Imaging and Nanomedicine.


Imaging La Fe is located in the University and Polytechnic Hospital and the La Fe Sanitary Research Institute in Valencia and it contains three main units:

Clinical Medical Image Unit for health care, which deals with advanced image acquisition and innovation techniques in humans, mainly through clinical trials and healthcare-based projects.

Preclinical Medical Imaging Unit (PREBI Experimental Radiology) for the study of small and large animals.

Biomedical Image Research Group (GIBI230) for the development of biomarkers of images and structured quantitative reports.



The Centro de BioImagen Complutense, BioImaC has its headquarters in the building of the Multidisciplinary Institute of the Complutense University of Madrid and is formed by the following units:

Cerebral Cartography Unit, which includes a microPET/CT, facilities for the housing of small animals, as well as an agreement in force between the company Curium Pharma Spain, S.A. and the UCM, for the use of the cyclotron (production of 18F) and radiochemistry laboratories for the synthesis of PET radiotracers.

Magnetic Resonance Unit: MR imaging on experimental animals at two magnetic field strengths, 4.7T - diameter 40 cm and 1.0T - diameter 7.6 cm, the latter with the possibility of direct use by researchers who request it (self-service). It also offers in vivo MR spectroscopy at 4.7T and ex vivo MR spectroscopy (HR-MAS) of biopsies and semi-solid matrices at 11.7T.

Diagnostic Imaging Service, with access to veterinary diagnostic techniques and in particular, MRI of large animals using 0.23T open magnet equipment, in addition to basic image services (ie, X-rays, ultrasound, fluoroscopy). All this equipment is part of the Veterinary Clinical Hospital of the UCM.
