Quadrature Mouse Volume Coils

Quadrature Mouse Volume Coils


dedicated mouse volume coil for non-invasive investigation of mice.

  • Quadrature polarization provides optimum SNR
  • B1-field homogeneity adapted to the application (e.g. heart or brain)
  • coil can be interfaced to any type of MR system including whole body scanners allowing pharmacological studies on contrast agents at a field strength of clinical relevance.
