To request a Tech or schedule a tentative non-scanning Prisma session please email BMCTechs@mednet.ucla.edu.  Once the request is approved or denied you will receive a notification via email. All requests will be processed in the order they are received. Please be sure to notify the techs if you need to cancel or reschedule your request(s).

 

For Non-Scanning Sessions:  Please check the MRI Calendar for available gaps prior to submitting a request. Note, if a scanning session ends up being scheduled during the time you requested your previous approval will be automatically voided. Please check the calendar availability right before your session to ensure that the time slot is still available.  Types of requests include:

 

• Equipment Training

• Export Raw Data

• Protocol Development

• Protocol Modifications

• Mock Scanning

• Paradigm/Stimulus Triggering

• Paradigm/Stimulus Modifications

• Other

 

For Tech Requests:  Please note, even if your tech request is approved, there are occasional instances where a tech might not be available last minute. This is rare, but can happen due to unforeseeable events. If this is the case, you will be still be responsible for the scan. This will not entitle you to an administrative or free cancellation, so it is best to always have a backup plan. In the email, be sure to specify what kind of Tech assistance you require.  Types of requests include:

 

• Safety Second: short staffed so you need a tech to be your safety second

• Implant Monitoring: tech required to monitor conditional implants approved by Dr. Woods

• Tech Assist: need help with setup, cleanup, troubleshooting functional equipment, training new researchers and/or the scan acquisition
