An advanced clinical MRI scanner is installed and operated with the Wesley hospital. The instrument is a Siemens 1.5T scanner, with Sonata Gradients capable of 40mT/m, with a slew rate of 200T/m/s. A minimum of 50% of the available time on all systems is devoted to research projects. It has an extensive range of anatomy and application-specific radiofrequency coils, as well as most of the currently used imaging sequences. Cooperation agreements with Siemens Medical Systems provide University research staff with the ability to develop new imaging sequences.
The system is configured with the latest parallel imaging technology, and is used extensively for musculoskeletal, cardiac, function brain imaging, and clinical breast imaging.
