April 2013 – 10.5T magnet being filled with liquid helium
at Agilent MR manufacturing facility in Yarnton, UK

Siemens MAGNETOM 10.5T

The Siemens MAGNETOM 10.5T is slated for delivery to CMRR in 2013. This magnet will be the world’s first 10.5T whole body human MRI scanner and will pioneer a new level of capabilities needed for advanced biomedical imaging. This revolutionary system was funded by the State of Minnesota, University of Minnesota and National Institute of Health.
