Dual Tuned Head Coil @ 7 T

DESCRIPTION

  • non-proton MRI and MRS
  • volume coil with 2 resonant frequencies
  • optimized sensitivity by quadrature polarisation for both nuclei
  • easy patient access – coil slides over patient’s head
  • available for many nuclei combination (31P/1H, 23Na/1H, 13C/1H…)
  • available for all 7 T human scanners

MEDICAL DEVICE APPROVAL

The current rules for medical devices prohibit a CE-approval for 7 T coils. To compensate for this RAPID Biomedical runs a medical device compatible testing of 7 T coils.

No Medical Device, CE according to Council Directive 93/42/EEC.

No FDA approval – limited by United States law to investigational use.

Please contact us for availability on your MR system.
