New 10.5T Magnet Delivered

December 7-8, 2013 The new 10.5T magnet was delivered to the CMRR this weekend. It was shipped to Duluth via the Great Lakes, then loaded onto a two-truck trailer. The magnet arrived Friday evening, and was unloaded and moved inside the CMRR on Saturday. The 110-ton instrument contains 720 miles of winding and weighs as much as a railroad locomotive and more than twice as much as a Boeing 737 airliner.

Multi-Band Accelerated Pulse Sequences

The multi-band accelerated EPI sequences developed at CMRR are available for use at other institutions on compatible Siemens scanners by C2P agreement with CMRR and Siemens. These sequences and the accompanying reconstructions are being actively developed as key components of the Human Connectome Project.

A gallery of example images and dicom files is available.
