Resource Type

  1. MRI Scanner


  1. Resource Description
    "(This instrument has an) 80mT/m head gradient set and an Avano whole body gradient set. The 7.0 T 90 cm (magnet ID) whole-body magnet was built by Magnex Scientific (Oxford, UK), and the conventional MRI console, gradient drivers and patient table were provided by Siemens. Integration of these components and the design and construction of RF coils were performed by MGH and Siemens personnel. The 7T whole body magnet is augmented with a 80mT/m, 800 T/m/s slew rate head gradient set (Siemens) for echoplanar imaging and 2nd and 3rd order resistive shim coils under computer control. With its high performance gradient set, the system can provide better than 100-µm resolution. The system is shielded by a 460-ton steel shield."
