MRI Scanner


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanner

A multipurpose research system for high-resolution magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. The Bruker BioSpec 70/20 MRI is multipurpose research system for high-resolution Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging. The system is equipped with 7 Tesla superconducting magnet designed with “Ultra Shielded Refrigerated” (USR) magnet technology. The USR technology significantly reduces the stray field to close to the magnet. The scanner has actively shielded, high-performance BGA-S series gradient system with integrated shim coil. Superior performance on the following major characteristics can thus be achieved:

  • Ultra high gradient strength
  • Very short gradient slew rates
  • Excellent gradient duty cycle (independent of shims and gradients)
  • Optimal gradient linearity
  • Very high gradient shielding quality
  • Maximal shim strength

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Software:

ParaVision® 6.0.1 software package provides a framework for multi-dimensional MRI/MRS data acquisition, reconstruction, analysis, and visualization.

  • This basic software package is supplemented by several extension packages which offer additional experimental techniques or sophisticated post-processing algorithms.
  • Standard acquisition, reconstruction, data analysis, and visualization. State-of-the-art 2D and 3D MR imaging techniques.
  • Easy set-up with auto-adjustments and localizer scans.
  • Predefined application oriented protocols.
  • Real-time display of acquired and reconstructed data.
  • Ready-to-use protocols for ultra-fast imaging sequences including echo-planar imaging (EPI) techniques, fMRI, perfusion Imaging, UTE, ZTE, DTI, SWI, Spiral Imaging, Cardiac Imaging.
  • On-line, off-line, reconstruction, including baseline correction, window multiplication, and phase correction capabilities.
