The Neuroimaging Platform is a technical group forming part of the CIBERSAM whose purpose is to act as a collection or database of neuroimages, connected with research projects carried out by the CIBER in the Mental Health area.
The Neuroimaging Platform can thus be seen as a space for hosting neuroimages. The aim is to further the use of neuroimaging techniques, and become a vehicle for contact between groups specialising in processing and analysis in the Mental Health CIBER. It also carries out a connection role exclusively between groups with a technical profile but with proven experience in image processing.
The images provided by the research groups connected with CIBERSAM are stored under dissociated coding, with the personal data of the subjects involved under the responsibility of the groups who provide the information.
The fixed resources are located at the Medical Imaging Laboratory, Medicine and Experimental Surgery Unit of the Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón de Madrid. Dr Manuel Desco (G07) coordinates the work required for maintaining the Neuroimaging Platform, as well as for ensuring the security, confidentiality, entirety and availability of the information stored in it, with the infrastructure and protocols required for accomplishing both purposes. It similarly has the scientific-technological infrastructure required to provide the CIBER’s scientific community with the collection of images contained in the Neuroimaging Platform.
The Neuroimaging Platform may be used by any researcher from the Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Salud Mental by getting in touch with the platform, which will inform them of the protocols to be applied.
