ParaVision 6

Preclinical Imaging Software

Higher Productivity and Increased Performance in Preclinical MRI

The preclinical MRI software ParaVision 7 delivers unsurpassed image quality and enhanced productivity for both routine users and experts. Intuitive workflows provide easy selection of optimized examination protocols including a large portfolio exclusive to Bruker. Fast, fully automatic system optimization and data acquisition together with powerful image data evaluation tools, guarantee maximum user efficiency and throughput.

The ParaVision 7 workflow is designed for optimal operation of MRI instruments powered by the electronic platforms AVANCE III or AVANCE III HD. It enables automatic hardware recognition for fast and easy setup, integrated dynamic real-time optimization and adjustment of experimental parameters during scanning, and fast 64 bit multi core image reconstruction for high resolution 3D imaging results. While making preclinical imaging more efficient for the expert user, ParaVision 7's ease of use is very attractive to customers in biological and pharmaceutical labs.
