The Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) is a fee-for-service research laboratory available to Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) members, UB investigators and other researchers interested in using our services.

Imaging fees depend on the funding source and species and are calculated on a per-hour basis. Contrast agents and PET radiopharmaceuticals are provided by the CBI at additional cost. The service fee schedule for various CBI services is listed below:

1 Internal Rate = (Cost - Subsidies): Internal users include academic, research, administrative, and auxiliary units whose originating source of funds is within or flows through the university. This includes state, RF, UBF, and Faculty Student Association (FSA) funds.

2 Internal Rate + GUSF = (Internal Rate + GUSF):  To be charged to internal customers paying with another form of payment (i.e. Wire Transfer, ACH, Electronic Payment, Paper Check or Credit Card (with prior approval)).

3 External Rate = (Cost + GUSF + Markup):  External users are individuals or organizations whose originating source of funds is outside the university. External users include faculty and staff acting in a personal capacity. Affiliated hospitals and other universities are external users unless the university has subcontracted with them as part of a grant or contract, in which case they are an internal user.
