Preclinical 9.4 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images. It comprises a variety of tools ranging from high-resolution anatomical structure visualization to functional studies and even molecular-level description of metabolic events in the cell.
Our mission is to provide and develop methods for advanced imaging techniques as tools for future scientific breakthroughs
We offer a modern and robust state-of-the-art imaging MRI system and many years of practical experience in a wide verity of MR-applications. High-quality images of small animals and excised tissue can be obtained. The availability of a so-called cryo-coil further boosts the image quality for mouse imaging and small ex-vivo samples. Also, advanced MRI analysis of data is available upon request.
Examples of studies that can be done:
- High-resolution anatomical 2D/3D imaging in vivo/ex vivo
- Metabolic studies in vivo
- Visualization of stroke and repair in vivo
- Contrast enhanced MRI in vivo
- Cardiac imaging including contrast enhanced MRI in vivo
- Characterization of tumor development in vivo/ex vivo
- Investigation of human plaque ex vivo
- Monitoring of bleeding/micro bleeding in vivo/ex vivo
- Bruker BioSpec Avance III
