Description
State-of-the-art Philips MRI scanner equipped with 32-channel brain array and actively-shielded superconducting magnet.

Ultra high field 7 T human MRI system can provide ultra high resolution (~0.2 mm) images, comparable to usual 1.5 T or 3 T MRI system. Many collaborators can join the studies on the brain/body functions and anatomic structures to solve the national agenda.

- Actively shielded compact 7 Tesla superconducting magnet

- Actively shielded gradient and 8 channel transmit and 32 channel receive RF systems

- Ultra-high resolution images and high resolution spectroscopic analysis

- Multi-nuclear (13C, 23Na and 31P) imaging and spectroscopic analysis
Application Area
- Studies on brain structure/brain diseases/brain functions, Diagnosis of diseases

- Studies on various body-parts (eg. abdominal region, spine, knee, foot, etc.)
