Magnetic Resonance Imaging

@Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB)

Your partner for preclinical and clinical MR research

IMCB has state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance (MR) (9.4 Tesla and 11.7 Tesla) scanners for preclinical imaging. In addition, our 11.7 Tesla Biospec has a superconducting CryoProbe, giving advanced image quality (SNR) even for the most demanding applications.

Our team is highly experienced in all aspects of preclinical and clinical MR: physics, pulse sequences, parameter optimization, acquisition, image processing and data analysis.
