Nanoscan® 7T

The nanoScan® MRI systems are equipped with a state-of-the-art cryogen-free superconducting magnet. Thanks to its translational and ultra-high 7T field, the system enables high end in vivo imaging applications of small animals while having very low installation and maintenance requirements. Uniquely on the preclinical market, the Pulse Tube cryocooler is mounted on the back of the scanner to minimize vibrations thus delivering ghost-free EPI images. The system is particularly adapted for high-end MRI experiments such as neuroimaging or spectroscopy, and is suitable for examinations requiring greater sensitivity, including brain imaging.

The nanoScan® MR 7.0 provides images with excellent resolution and with very high sensitivity.

The MRI systems are also available in a combination with NanoScan® PET (picture above) as PET/MRI systems. The 3T MRI preclinical system is based on the Cameleon4 technology.
