9.4T MRI

Bruker 9.4T MRI small animal scanner

The 9.4T animal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system (Bruker) is a flexible and adaptable MRI scanner for preclinical imaging and research. The system has an intuitive user interface and a flexible programming environment and can carry out a wide range of preclinical imaging functions. The ultra high magnetic field provides structural and functional images with higher resolution in comparison with clinical MRI. It can be used for brain, abdominal, cardiovascular, muscular and articular, as well as dynamic molecular imaging.

The 9.4T MRI scanner can image objects as large as 7cm in diameter and as small as 100 microns.
