Vertical super wide bore magnets with bore diameters of 154 mm and field strengths up to 9.4 T have been used for imaging studies for some time. Now, even higher field strengths of up to 11.7 T have become available. A particular advantage of the super wide bore magnets is the large volume of homogeneous field that is produced.
An increasing number of imaging applications demand the ultra-high magnetic fields with increased requirements to gradient and shimming technology. Bruker BioSpin therefore is introducing the BGA-S series, a complete new series of high performance actively shielded gradient systems with integrated shim coils.
Superior performance on the following major characteristics can thus be achieved:
- Ultra high gradient strength
- Very short gradient slew rates
- Excellent gradient duty cycle
- Optimal gradient linearity
- Very high gradient shielding quality
- Maximal shim strength
