Rat Heart Phased Arrays

DESCRIPTION

For experiments on the rat heart, RAPID Biomedical has developed a dedicated rat heart coil.

  • 4-channel* and 2-channel version available
  • increased sensitivity, even from the deeper regions of the tissue, e.g. from the back wall of the myocardium
  • built into an anatomically shaped housing
  • mechanically adapted to RAPID rat holder LHRXGS-00563
  • compatible with both dedicated animal or whole body scanners to allow pharmacological studies on contrast agents at a field strength of clinical relevance

* 4 channels recommended for parallel imaging techniques, only
