ParaVision 6

A rich palette of image analysis and visualization tools

Enables to extract more complex information from 2D or 3D images

All application packages benefit from ParaVision’s  new data base driven network data management, and new archiving capabilities enable the connection of multiple ParaVision workstations and DICOM server archiving. ParaVision 6 also supports and facilitates data exchange with other imaging modalities in your lab.


ParaVision 6 benefits from the power of AVANCE III HD MRI, Bruker’s ultimate high performance MRI platform for preclinical research, now including seamless integration of Bruker’s proprietary parallel transmit electronics, push-button infrastructure, as well as optimal integration of Bruker MRI CryoProbes.
Designed to an entirely new concept, it provides on-the-fly high speed digital signal processing possibilities and enables automatic RF-pulse shape calculation resulting in improved image slice profiles and sensitivity. In addition, dynamic time-dependent image artifact correction during scanning is now available for optimum image quality in functional imaging studies. The new in-line navigator-based image reconstruction ensures maximum image stability in fast imaging applications such as EPI.

3D Visualization and Analysis
