b_282_160_16777215_00_images_institute_wien_wienscanner.jpgThe High Field MR Centre, Vienna (HFMRC) is part of the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Image-guided Therapy of the Medical University of Vienna. The centre is an interdisciplinary platform for the development of morphological, functional, metabolic imaging and spectroscopy methods for high and ultra-high field magnetic resonance (3 Tesla and 7 Tesla), and for the application of these methods to basic and clinical research.


Research areas

• musculoskeletal MR
• neuroimaging
• metabolic MR imaging and spectroscopy


3 Tesla Siemens TRIO
3 Tesla Siemens PRISMA
7 Tesla Siemens MAGNETOM
A special feature of this device is the extremely strong micro gradient system (9 cm, 750mT/m)
All listed MR units are equipped with full-body volume and surface coils for proton imaging and spectroscopy.
There are also different coils to detect signals from other nuclei such as 13C, 23Na, or 31P.
