The clinical imaging core facility

The Clinical Imaging Core faCility (ci2c), headed by Pr. Jean Pierre Pruvo and located at Lille University Hospital in France, focuses on developing and optimizing methods and software for quantitative analysis of brain medical images with particular focus on the study of neurodegenerative and epilepsy diseases. We work with many types of data, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), structural imaging, electroencephalography (EEG), and nuclear imaging (PET). Our group, formed in 2009, includes neuroradiologists and scientists from Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. For each research study, a strong collaboration exists between clinicians and scientists. The laboratory is part of the INSERM U1171 team, directed by Pr. Regis Bordet. This team gathers people of many neuroscience fields and offers a lot of clinical data availability (such as, clinical, imaging and genetic data)

Current Research Interests

  • Multimodal and multivariate MRI approaches for the characterization of post-stroke dementia
  • Cognitive phenotypes in Parkinson disease: anatomical and structural correlates
  • Longitudinal study of early onset Alzheimer's patients using PET and MRI data
  • Study of dynamic functional connectivity in epilepsy: an EEG-fMRI approach


  • 3T Philips Achieva MRI scanner (entirely dedicated to research)
  • 128 channel EGI's MR-compatible EEG Systems for simultaneous EEG-fMRI recordings
  • fMRI paradigm presentation
  • cluster
