MRI Systems

Our Facility is home to a 4.7T Animal MRI scanner which is located in the Canadian Center for Behavioural Neuroscience (CCBN). The animal MRI scanner has been at field since Dec. 2006 and is house inside the animal facility of the CCBN. This scanner has an Oxford 4.7T magnet with a 330mm horizontal bore.This system also uses a Magnetic Resonance MR6000 console with a two coil arrangement.This system is hooked up to the helium recovery system and this reduces the cryogen costs associated with the magnet by about 95%.For more information on the animal MRI system in the U of L Magnetic Resonance Facility please contact Dr. Albert Cross.
