For sharper pictures of the body's interior
Date:1/28/2009

ed for brain research". The new whole-body MRT at the Max Delbrck Center is to, however, have considerably more widespread use. The machine will provide pictures of extremely high resolution from the interior of the body of test persons. The researchers expect to receive insights into the development of diseases and the metabolic processes involved.

In clinics, MRT machines with 1.5 or 3 tesla (that is the unit for the magnetic flux) are customary. The 7-tesla tomograph will at first be purely a research instrument in order to explore the possibilities of the ultra-high-field magnetic resonance tomography. It is the only machine worldwide of the modern 7-tesla generation in which also a metrology institute is involved. "I find exemplary how physicians, physicists, mathematicians and engineers of the involved institutes have joined forces here in order to open up a new dimension in medical diagnostics", rejoiced PTB President Professor Dr. Ernst Gbel.

The stray magnetic field of the magnet, weighing 32 tonnes is so strong that all objects containing iron are strongly prohibited in its direct proximity. Only outside of a cage nearly five meters high and 14 meters long and made of 250 tonnes of steel is the field shield strong enough, for example, for the operation of computers.

The project partners are in addition to the Max Delbrck Center and the PTB, also the Berlin Charit, the Leibnizinstitut fr Molekulare Pharmakologie (Leibniz Institute of Molecular Pharmacology) and the Siemens company.
