b_282_160_16777215_00_images_institute_magdeburg_7Tgebaeude_magdeburg.jpgThe Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology operates Europe's first 7 Tesla MRI scanner for human studies in cooperation with the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg. The system was installed in 2004 next to the University Hospital. Research focus: neuroscience

 

Research areas

• Functional magnetic resonance imaging: visual, auditory, restingstate, task-based, real-time
• Imaging of deeper brain regions
• Method development: sequences, RF shimming, dynamic shimming
• Motion Correction
• Distortion Correction
• Flow Sensitive 4D MRI (aneurysm) DTI fiber tracking
• Patient measurement: Multiple sclerosis, ALS controls, depression

Facilities

8-Channel Parallel Transmit System
70 mT / m, 200mT/m/ms gradient coil
RF Coils: 32-channel head coil, 24-channel head coil, 8-channel head coil, 8 channel head coil pTX, 28 channel knee coil, various in-house-built head coils
FMRI: video projector, audio system (MR Confon), 4 key response system (LUMItouch), synchronized trigger, eye tracking
Physiological monitoring: ECG, oxygen saturation, respiratory
dynamic shimming
