Dual Tuned Head Coil

DESCRIPTION

  • optimized for studies of the human head.
  • both channels equipped with quadrature polarization
  • enhanced sensitivity
  • optimum SNR and homogeneity
  • capable of performing 1H decoupled experiments when applicable
  • maximum patient comfort
  • available for 31P, 23Na and 13C  combined with 1H (other non-proton nuclei on demand)
  • individually adaptable to most established MR systems
  • a pediatric version with adapted measurements is also available
