Dual Tuned Flex Surface Coil

DESCRIPTION

  • MR spectroscopy coils for multi purpose use like skeletal muscle
  • maximum patient comfort
  • optimized SNR and penetration depth
  • available for any nuclei combination (31P/1H, 23Na/1H, 13C/1H…) – example shows a 31P vastus application
  • For liver and cardiac applications we offer coils with adapted size for appropriate penetration depth.
  • available for most 1.5 T and 3 T MR systems

MEDICAL DEVICE APPROVAL

Medical Device, CE according to Council Directive 93/42/EEC.

No FDA approval – limited by United States law to investigational use.

Please contact us for availability on your MR system.
