Mouse Head and Heart Arrays

Mouse Head and Heart Arrays


  • surface coil array for 1H imaging of small animals
  • 2- or 4-*channel arrays for mouse brain or cardiac
  • receive only
  • actively decoupled
  • fixed tuned
  • anatomical shape for optimized receive homogeneity and SNR
  • supporting parallel imaging experiments
  • mechanically adapted to RAPID mouse holder LHRXGS-00562
  • measurements down to 50 mm x 16 mm
  • coil and animal holder fit into volume transmit coils with an inner diameter of 72 mm or more
  • pre-requisites:
    – 2 resp. 4 channel receiver system
    – PIN diode driver
    – actively decoupled volume transmit coil

Individually adaptable to the established systems like Bruker, Agilent, Varian and clinical scanners at any field strength.
