Dual Tuned Head Coil

Dual Tuned Head Coil

Description

  • dual tuned volume resonator for head applications
  • optimized for studies of the human head
  • transmit / receive – quadrature polarization on both channels
  • 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)
  • B0 field strength: 1.5 and 3 T
  • approximate inner diameter: 26.5 cm
  • a pediatric version with adapted measurements is also available

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

FDA 510(k) no. K102748 for 31P/1H, 13C/1H and 23Na/1H nuclei combinations at Siemens Tim Trio and Philips Achieva MR systems, only (available only through RAPID Biomedical, Germany).

Caution – for all other MR systems and nuclei combinations: Investigational device, limited by Federal (or United States) law to investigational use.
