Getting Started

  1. Contact SMH MRI Research staff by email: or phone 416-864-6060 ext 6175 to discuss the feasibility of your study and what protocols are available. Once we have confirmed we are able to provide MRI services for your study we will forward the service application.
  2. Internal SMH researchers must apply for SMH ethics approval
  3. Submit an MRI Research Service Application (depending on your funding source the appropriate version will be emailed to you). You can perform this step while ethics approval is still pending.
  4. Your application will be reviewed by the SMH 3T Steering Committee. Once your application has been approved you will receive a MRI Research Service Agreement.
  5. Complete and return the service agreement. Once received, we will email the booking documents and instructions for our online scheduling system, Calpendo.
  6. Begin booking research MRI scans.
