About us

The Brain Imaging Facility of the Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research (IZKF Aachen) is the central facility for planning, executing and analysing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies within the Medical Faculty of the RWTH Aachen University.

We provide technical infrastructure, advice and support for functional MRI studies and coordinate their execution in collaboration with several clinics of RWTH Aachen University. We are dedicated to clinical research and development of related methods and techniques.

We regularly host several educational courses and colloquia related to the field of neuroimaging.
