Clinical 3T Human MRI System (4.7T)

The University of Lethbridge, in partnership with a group of local radiologists, has created a world-class research and diagnostic imaging facility. This facility will provide southern Alberta with the most powerful human magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the region. This facility is housed in the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience and is based on a Siemens 3 Tesla MAGNETOM Skyra human MRI System. It will greatly expand research possibilities for faculty and students at the University of Lethbridge, as well as provide clinical scanning for Southern Alberta patients wishing to pay for a private MRI study. This system will be installed in May of 2016 and the facility is expected to be fully operational by mid-July.
