The Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC) is a dedicated research center that has expertise in neurointerventional devices clinical trials. Our team uses both qualitative and quantitative analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance and digital subtraction angiography for clinical research. 

We served as Clinical Core Lab for a number of neurointerventional devices clinical trials. BNAC also collaborates actively on neurointerventional devices research with Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Gates Vascular Institute.
