Localised X-nuclei body coils

for clinical research

in the chest or abdomen

Model MN20BC: localised body coils giving targeted MR Imaging or spectroscopy in the chest and abdomen

  • Dual element 20 cm diameter coils placed above and below the body, designed to give optimal B1 and signal to noise ratio for applications in the region of interest.
  • Nuclei: 31P, 19F, 23Na, 13C, 3He, 7Li, 129Xe
  • Designed to contour to different body shapes to maximise sensitivity
  • Foam covering for optimal comfort
  • Coils are 1H body coil compatible for 1H imaging.
  • 19F and 3He coils feature active detuning
  • Available for 3.0 T MR systems from all system manufacturers: Philips (Achieva and Ingenia), Siemens (Trio, Verio, Skyra, Prisma and Vida) and GE (HDx and MR750)
  • Coil files available for all the latest software releases

Example applications

  • Natural abundance 23Na or hyperpolarised 13C imaging of the heart or kidney
  • 129Xe or 3He for hyperpolarised studies of the lungs
  • 19F coils used to study potential of various fluorinated agents in the intestine, lungs or liver

Multinuclear phantoms

All our RF coils can be provided with bespoke phantoms. These provide:

  • Tissue equivalent body loading
  • Reference sample containers
  • Designed for use in QA, coil calibration and spectral optimisation
