7.0 Tesla MRI Facility


Facility Description

The 7.0 Tesla Bruker pre-Clinical 70/30 MRI System is equipped with a 12 cm usable bore size and a 72 mm Tx/Rx volume coil. It is a multi-purpose research system for high-resolution magnetic resonance spectroscopy and 2D or 3D imaging. It is equipped with 450 mT/m actively shielded gradient subsystems with integrated shim capability. The system features several high resolution RF resonators for imaging of small animals and ex-vivo specimens. It includes double tuned 1H/31P, 1H/13C and 1H/23Na coils for multi-nuclear imaging and spectroscopy. The system also provides a real-time animal monitoring system.
