Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR)


The Imaging Sciences Center, housed within the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR) facility, constitutes the ICTR imaging services component. The ICTR imaging services component offers ICTR members, through the UW Department of Radiology, provides access to multi-modality diagnostic imaging technologies and expertise in image acquisition and analysis.
Imaging Consult Request

The first step is to complete the consult form, or contact Frank Korosec at (608) 265-5588 or FKorosecatwisc [dot] edu for a consultation regarding your research imaging needs through ICTR. Dr. Korosec will explain the research protocol review process, the benefits of a consultation, the timetable, the discounts available first through the Radiology Department research program, and then explain the process for obtaining the additional 30% ICTR discount.

With a verified ICTR membership, investigators will receive a 30% discount off the standard research imaging rates, following protocol review and approval by the Radiology Research Review Committee. The maximum ICTR discount per year per protocol is $6,000. More specific information and forms for requesting imaging consultation are available to ICTR members in a special members-only section of this web portal.
