Wideblue Contributes to Ground Breaking MRI Scanner Project

14 January 2021

Leading product design consultancy Wideblue has congratulated its client MR CoilTech on successfully completing the first trial of a novel high-density radiofrequency (RF) head coil technology at the University of California, Berkeley.

The head coil design, a first of its kind, utilizes 16-channel transmit and 96-channel receive RF architecture. The new prototype high-density head coil combines with the NexGen 7T scanner capabilities to enable high-resolution full brain imaging to support studies of the cerebral cortex at an unprecedented microscale resolution — boosting the image resolution by a factor of 20 than current 7T MRI. The project aims to provide new insights into brain disease research.
