Typical functional MRI experiments are performed with multi receive channel RF coils resulting on the reconstruction of multiple images per time frame. These...View more
First measurements with the AROMA RF coil prototype
The University of Glasgow delivered a 8Tx-8Rx RF coil prototype to test at 11.7T some concepts and verify the coil efficiency as well as the accuracy...View more
New AROMA publication about SNR versus magnetic field strength on...
The Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) was measured at the center of a spherical phantom at 3T, 7T, 9.4T, 10.5T and 11.7T and over 3 sites (NeuroSpin, University of...View more
pTx water-selective excitation development
Interleaved binomial kT-points combine advantages of flip angle homogenization using kT-points and suppression of fat signal with binomial water excitation in...View more
Skope to the rescue….!
A strong artefact in the images at 11.7T was visible in some acquisitions. Field monitoring performed with the AROMA field camera revealed field oscillations...View more
Multiparametric mapping with AROMA tools
Skipped-CAIPI 3D-EPI was implemented for rapid multiparametric mapping. High resolution whole brain images acquired within 3 min provide precise quantitative...View more
