Dual Tuned Head Coil @ 7 T
- non-proton MRI and MRS
- volume coil with 2 resonant frequencies
- optimized sensitivity by quadrature polarisation for both nuclei
- easy patient access – coil slides over patient’s head
- available for many nuclei combination (31P/1H, 23Na/1H, 13C/1H…)
- available for all 7 T human scanners
MEDICAL DEVICE APPROVAL
The current rules for medical devices prohibit a CE-approval for 7 T coils. To compensate for this RAPID Biomedical runs a medical device compatible testing of 7 T coils.
No Medical Device, CE according to Council Directive 93/42/EEC.
No FDA approval – limited by United States law to investigational use.
