Phased Arrays for Monkey Brain
NMR studies of conscious monkeys set very high demands towards animal handling. Even with trained animals a minimization of the measurement time is mandatory. One way to achieve this is the application of phased array coils which allow parallel imaging methods such as SENSE or GRAPPA.
To enable this option on animal NMR spectrometers with multi channel capabilities RAPID Biomedical has developed three different monkey brain array coils. Designed for optimum SNR the coils are adapted to the animal handling system and magnet type (vertical or horizontal bore). Channel numbers vary between 4 and 8 channels. As with most RAPID products the coils can be delivered for various field strengths up to 9.4 T.
