Research Units Across the World go for the First 3 Tesla, Cryogen Free MRI Bench Top Scanner

LONDON, February 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Since the launch of its ground breaking helium free, 3T, bench top MRI scanner late last year MR Solutions has taken orders for the installation of five of these revolutionary machines from university and hospital research units across the world.

The universities of Antwerp, Düsseldorf, Perth (Australia) and the hospital research centres at George-Francois Leclerc centre (France), Beaumont Hospitals (Michigan) are installing these powerful new scanners over the next year.

The new scanner, not only provides superior soft tissue contrast and molecular imaging capability but, because of its new design, can be easily installed in an existing laboratory.

The scanner is able to do away with the liquid helium cooling system by using a revolutionary magnet design incorporating new superconducting wire. This enables the use of a standard low temperature cryocooler (fridge) to cool the magnet to 4 degrees Kelvin (minus 269 degrees C), necessary to achieve superconductivity. This solution was pioneered by MR Solutions and its magnet partner.

The scanner does not have to be in a separate metal lined room as its stray magnetic field is only a few centimetres and will not interfere with the other laboratory equipment.

These technological advances have dramatically reduced the cost of this powerful scanner to make it extremely competitive.

Professor Van der Linden Bio Imaging Laboratory of the University of Antwerp commented "We have been working with MR Solutions for many years as they are the technological leaders in this field. This new scanner is a breakthrough and will provide us with the extra scanning power we need."

Professor Van der Linden continued "We can just wheel it in without knocking down any walls and without having to install costly helium and safety systems. And as its stray magnetic field is so small we can put other sensitive laboratory equipment and scanners close by for much better work flow."
