Hi

I am wondering does any one have any information on where I may obtain MR images or CT scans of the rat brains. I have just started a project on the development of lesion specific brain injury criteria due to blunt head impact injuries. This involves the construction of a Finite element model of the rat brain which will be validated using experimental results. The rats that will be used in the experiments will be the Sprague Dawley kind and I'm wondering has anyone done any work on this type of thing before and if so are there medical images available. Also, if there are any experiments going on would it be possible to use the results to validate my model? I would really appreciate any help on this. Thank you.
Kindest Regards,
