8 Channel Volumetric Mouse Array

8 Channel Volumetric Mouse Array


Most MRI studies start with an overview image. After this, a particular region is covered in detail. These two tasks are typically achieved with two separate coils.

  • The RAPID Biomedical 8 channel volumetric mouse array migrates both tasks into one coil.
  • It covers a FOV of 8 cm length.
  • For high SNR details you can choose only the coil elements next to your ROI.
  • The animal is positioned only once and after that no further repositioning is needed.
  • The array supports parallel imaging methods such as SENSE or GRAPPA.
  • It can be operated on multi-channel MR systems.
  • The coil is delivered with animal support with integrated anaesthesia mask and bite bar.
