Equipment Neuroimaging

3 Tesla system

The following list, which is not exhaustive, gives examples of specific human MR acquisition protocols:

  • Structural MRI (sMRI) including high-resolution anatomical scans
  • Diffusion MRI (diffusion weighted imaging [DWI], diffusion tensor imaging [DTI], diffusion spectral imaging [DSI])
  • Functional MRI (task-based fMRI, resting-state fMRI, EEG-informed fMRI)
  • Quantitative MRI (T1-, T2-relaxometry)
  • Perfusion imaging (e.g., arterial spin labelling [ASL]) and angiography (with or without contrast agents)
  • Whole body MRI (e.g., visceral fat quantification)
  • Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (single-voxel 1H-MRS, chemical shift imaging [CSI])
  • Combined measurements (EEG/fMRI, polysomnography/fMRI, startle EMG/fMRI, skin conductance/fMRI)

9.4 Tesla system

A main focus of the preclinical system lies on the following applications:

  • Structural MRI (high-resolution anatomical scans (~ 80 µm))
  • MR-microscopy (high-resolution (isotropic ~50 µm) ex vivo mouse brain MRI, gadolinium- or manganese-enhanced)
  • MEMRI (Manganese enhanced MRI for structural or functional characterization)
  • functional MRI (BOLD, resting state)
  • MRS (single-voxel 1H-MRS)
  • Whole body MRI (e.g., visceral fat quantification)
