11.7 Tesla Bruker BioSpin MRI

Well I thought 3 Tesla was alot, but at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD they has just installed a 11.7 Tesla Ultra Shielded Refrigerated (USR) system, a device simply called BioSpec 117/16 USR. This system doesn’t scan humans, it enables reserchers to take highly resolved routine images of the rat brain leading to outstanding quality. The signal-to-noise ratio obtained at this field strength allows one to acquire high resolution images of the microscopic structures in the brain!
