The Marcus Institute is home to the only PET-MRI scanner in the region, a revolutionary technology that combines the diagnostic capabilities of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with Positron Emission Tomography (PET).

The machine’s 3-Tesla MRI gives highly precise visualization of the brain’s anatomy, while the PET component allows us to observe the brain’s functioning in real time. Together, this unique dual-scanner allows for an efficient and multi-layered picture of brain structures and performance, while limiting the exposure to radiation that’s typically involved in less advanced imaging techniques.

Our expert EBH providers, with decades of experience in neuroscience, neuro-imaging and clinical psychology, apply this technology to evaluate the structure of your brain and its blood vessels, as well as to observe the metabolic function of your brain using a glucose tracer.


At the end of the program, you will receive thorough and empowering medical advice that’s based on your evaluation and tailored to your goals. Your path forward may include novel therapies, targeted nutrient and lifestyle interventions, conventional medical care and, if needed, referral to specialists in our vast network of expert providers.

We are glad to collaborate with your current health care providers and you will receive a comprehensive assessment report to share with them, as well.
