9.4T MRI Small Animal

The 9.4T animal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system (Bruker) located at the ARA-MBI campus in Prahran is optimised for rodent and high-resolution sample imaging. The ultra high magnetic field coupled with rodent cryocoils provides structural and functional images with higher resolution and signal to noise ratio compared with standard MRI. This scanner can be used for brain, abdominal, cardiovascular, muscular and articular, as well as dynamic molecular imaging.

  • Small animal imaging studies

  • Mouse and rat cryocoils for brain and whole body imaging

  • Mouse and rat cardiac surface coils for heart imaging

  • 40 mm 19F fluorine imaging coil for use with rodents or samples

  • 35 mm volume coil for high-resolution mouse head or sample imaging

  • 86 mm radio frequency transmit and receive coils

  • Suitable isofluorane anaesthesia and animal monitoring system

  • Full range of beds to cater for more species and samples
