The nanoScan® MRI systems are equipped with a state-of-the-art cryogen-free superconducting magnet. Thanks to its translational 3T and ultra-high 7T field, the system enables high-end in-vivo imaging applications of small animals while having very low installation and maintenance requirements. Uniquely on the preclinical market, the Pulse Tube cryocooler is mounted on the back of the scanner to minimize vibrations thus delivering ghost-free EPI images. The system is particularly adapted for high-end MRI experiments such as neuroimaging or spectroscopy.
The MRI system is also available in PET/MRI configuration with our high-end PET systems.
The core of the nanoScan MRI systems is the most robust cryogen-free superconducting magnet ever built for preclinical applications.Uniquely on the market it features a back mounted cryocooler to reduce conducted vibrations and make maintenance easier.
The nanoScan® MRI systems come with a wide range of readily optimized protocols for mice and rats including the most common MRI techniques as well as state-of-the art pulse sequences and methods including parallel imaging (GRAPPA), ultra short TE sequences such as UTE or ZTE with multiple readout techniques as well as a number of different Spectroscopy sequences (i.e. PRESS, LASER, EPSI etc.) and an extensive EPI family with a wide range of options and correction schemes making fMRI and DTI applications effortless to execute.
Mediso offers a wide range of RF coils fully integrated with the MultiCell™ system enabling precise animal positioning in relation to the coils thus delivering the best possible SNR.
The Sequence Development Platform enables you to create your own sequences or modify the existing ones. With the intuitive GUI, programming and testing a new sequence is very easy and straightforward. A built-in tool helps you to test out various, freely customizable reconstruction and post-processing algorithms and adding new ones.
The proprietary SmartMagnet™ system ensures safe and robust operation of the superconducting magnet when facing power outages or non-ideal cooling conditions. The system features:
