Facility Details

CACTIS mission is to oversee proposed research protocols that involve human, animal, phantom or specimen studies in an effort to achieve two goals, to ensure that all research performed on CT scanners comply with CACTIS and University policy, and Federal Regulations, and to determine if CACTIS can maintain the resources required to carry out each research protocol, including personnel, software, hardware and scan time. Additionally, CACTIS oversees the day-to-day operations of all CT procedures associated with research protocols, provides information regarding the use of CT facilities to the research community at the University of Pennsylvania, provides CACTIS users with all of the policies of the institution governing research, and ensures that CACTIS is in compliance with these policies. The service center strives to support the Perelman School of Medicine’s research endeavors by providing CT research services for a fee designed only to cover actual costs.
