Get Started

to Initiate an MR Study

Please read the User’s Guide to the 7T Facility for a description of usage policies and procedures. Here is a brief overview of initial steps to using the facility:

  1. Contact UBC MRI facility staff to discuss the feasibility of conducting your study, and study protocols available to you. Preliminary scans may be performed to help determine the feasibility of the study, as needed.
  2. Apply for a new ACC protocol, or make amendments to the current protocol describing all procedures that will be carried out.
  3. Submit a MR Protocol Proposal form to the Imaging Centre Administrator. You can perform this step while ACC Protocol Approval is still pending.


Note: the 7T MRI facility operates as on a cost recovery basis. For current fee rates and cancellation policy, see 7T Imaging Rates.
