1.5 T MR Systems on Ellison II

These are two General Electric (Waukesha, WI) LX Excite platform 1.5 T whole-body MRI with all the necessary hardware and software (version 8.3) to perform basic and clinical research including CINE, MR angiography and spectroscopy.

1.5 T MR Trailer System on Founders I

This system is available for basic clinical research and clinical studies. It is a Siemens (Erlangen, Germany) Sonata 1.5 T 60 cm whole-body MRIs equipped with hardware and software that perform echo planar, CINE, MR angiography, diffusion and perfusion studies andspectroscopy for state of the art neuro and cardiac clinical evaluation. Gradient strengths are 40 mT/m, slew rates are 200 T/m/s, and the systems offer routine second order shimming.

1.5 T MR System in Yawkey Outpatient Center

This system is available for basic clinical research and clinical studies. It is a state-of-the-art 1.5T Siemens Avanto system with 32 RF channel capabilities. It is a 60 cm whole-body MRIs equipped with hardware and software that perform echo planar, CINE, MR angiography, diffusion and perfusion studies and spectroscopy for state of the art neuro and cardiac clinical evaluation. Gradient strengths are 45 mT/m, slew rates are 200 T/m/s, and the systems offer routine second order shimming.

3 T MR System in Yawkey Outpatient Center

This is a 3T Siemens Trio 60 cm (patient tube ID) whole-body MRI with EPI, second order shimming, CINE, MR angiography, diffusion, perfusion, and spectroscopy capabilities for both neuro and body applications. This system uses the same gradients as the 1.5 T Sonata (40 mT/m strength, 200T/m/s slew rate). The system is equipped with 8 RF channel receivers accommodating up to 8 element array coils. The system incorportates multinuclear spectroscopy capability.

1.5 T Cardiac Interventional MRI on Bulfinch I

This is a General Electric 1.5 T whole-body LX Signa CNV MRI specifically intended for development of MR techniques for interventional cardiology.
