3 Tesla MRI Suite

3 Tesla Magnet

This facility uses a new class of magnet optimized for studying subjects smaller than conventional magnet systems. Its 3-Tesla field strength, double that of conventional whole-body systems, yields better signal quality. The small 640-mm magnet bore (two thirds the size of whole-body systems) is optimized for adult heads and neonates.
