Optimized for Functional Imaging
The 3-tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are specifically optimized for the acquisition and interpretation of rich research data and will serve to train the next generation of scientists – those who will be developing new analytics, new technology, and new approaches to create completely new visualization capabilities.
The design and field strength are optimized for functional MRI (fMRI), providing crisp anatomical detail and a signal-to-noise ratio that reduces distortion to facilitate the acquisition and interpretation of data.
