Uses

  • In vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of animals such as mice, rats and rabbits.
  • Besides the animal work, a whole variety of other samples can be imaged using proton MRI.
  • Furthermore, the system has the option to acquire data from the X - nuclei (e.g. 23Na, 31P, 13C, ...)

Specifications

  • 31 cm horizontal bore system, operated by an Agilent Direct Drive console with four receiver channels
  • Two gradient sets can be used: 21 cm i.d. with 200 mT/m maximum gradient strength; and 12 cm i.d. with 400 mT/m maximum gradient strength
