MR Solutions Showcases World’s First 7.0 Tesla Commercial, Cryogen Free, Preclinical System

May 13, 2014 — The world’s first commercial cryogen free, 7.0 Tesla, preclinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, 3.0 Tesla cryogen free preclinical benchtop MRI system and their other range of preclinical modalities, were displayed at MR Solutions booth at the joint International Society for Magnetic Resonance/ European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ISMRM/ESMRMB) meeting on May 10, in Milan, Italy.

The 7.0 Tesla system, which has a bore of 17 centimeters, will be followed later in the year with a range of imaging systems with larger bore sizes.

Both the 3.0 Tesla and 7.0 Tesla systems can now be fitted with a state-of-the-art, clip-on single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) camera. 

MR Solutions has been able to dispense with the usual liquid helium cooling system by using a magnet design. This enables the use of a standard low temperature fridge to cool the magnet to the required 4 K (-269°C).

The magnet in the new 7.0 Tesla MRI system has an elliptical field of view, which makes it even more suitable for research purposes.

The new 7.0 Tesla systems, not only provides soft tissue contrast and molecular imaging capability, but because of its new design, it only takes the space of a large desk and therefore can be easily fitted in within an existing laboratory.

These technological advances have dramatically reduced the cost of these powerful systems to make them extremely competitive.
