Dual Tuned Head Coil
- optimized for studies of the human head.
- both channels equipped with quadrature polarization
- enhanced sensitivity
- optimum SNR and homogeneity
- capable of performing 1H decoupled experiments when applicable
- maximum patient comfort
- available for 31P, 23Na and 13C combined with 1H (other non-proton nuclei on demand)
- individually adaptable to most established MR systems
- a pediatric version with adapted measurements is also available
