The Bruker 9.4T MRI scanner underwent extensive repairs over the past few months, but this work has recently been completed. SAI staffs have worked around the clock to test the console, gradients, coils, sequences, animal monitoring systems, etc., to ensure that everything is performing to specifications. The Bruker 9.4T MRI offers a robust and versatile platform for anatomical and functional MRI on live animals and specimens. The system is staffed by experts who are ready to help you with your study from design to publication. The MRI system can provide both anatomical and functional imaging with various sequences and imaging protocols (T1-weighted, T2-weighted, Perfusion, Diffusion, DTI, etc).
