MRI system upgrades
High performance upgrades to extend the possibilities of the MRI system. Previous work integrates a 32 channel RF amplifier as an add-on to a 7T system for extended multi-transmit capabilities and improved image quality1. Other possibilities exist in integrating multi-nuclear amplifiers in the MRI system, or in integrating multi-transmit possibilities in the system using vector modulators.
