Overview - Rat Array MRI CryoProbe -Delivers Highest Sensitivity in Rat Brain in vivo Imaging

Rat Array MRI CryoProbe

Rat Array MRI CryoProbe

Advanced MRI coil technology delivers highest sensitivity in rat brain in vivo imaging

The rat array MRI CryoProbe™ for in vivo neuroimaging delivers unparalleled access to rat brain microstructure and biochemistry, previously unresolvable in in vivo imaging of the rat. Thanks to very low temperature, closed-cycle cooled RF coils and preamplifiers, this unique MRI CryoProbe delivers an increase in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of up to a factor of 2.4 over equivalent room-teperature RF-coils. The sensitivity increase allows researchers to reduce imaging times by a factor of 5, or to increase spatial resolution.

Features

  • Up to 2.4 factor increase in SNR
  • Factor 5 reduction in imaging times
  • Seamless integration with ParaVision® 6
  • Automatic hardware recognition
  • Automatic tuning and matching
  • Available at 400 MHz (9.4 T)
