Siemens Sonata 1.5T

This system is dedicated to research studies, using conventional anatomic imaging, cardiac imaging, and functional MRI. This system has the same gradient capabilities as the 3T (40mT/m maximum amplitude, and a slew rate of 200T/m/sec with a 100% duty cycle). The system also has an 8-channel receiver array head-coil for parallel imaging applications. The magnet is dedicated to basic radiology/neuroscience research including fMRI and the development of MR imaging approaches for Neurosurgical planning.
