A groundbreaking study

The Champaign-Urbana Population Study is the first joint research study of the Carle Illinois Advanced Imaging Center

At the center, Carle Health and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign jointly operate the Siemens 7 T Magnetom Terra MRI scanner. In the study's first phase, volunteer adult participants will establish a baseline for future studies.
