The Department of Radiology Research 3 Tesla MRI facility located on the University Hospital B2-Level provides high quality anatomic and advanced MR imaging services for IRB-approved, sponsor-funded studies and clinical trials. The research scanner, a 3T Philips Ingenia operating at software version 5.6x, offers a 70cm diameter wide bore for subject comfort. The system is fully digital with on-coil conversion to optical, patient-specific dual-channel transmit B1 shimming and second-order B0 shimming. The system contains a full complement of coils including: 32channel head; 15ch head; 20ch head & neck; 52ch total neuro; two 16ch anterior torso/cardiac for whole-body studies; 16ch breast and 7ch for breast-biopsy; and all MSK coils (knee, shoulder, wrist, small extremity, foot/ankle, and three flex coil pairs). Each gradient axis provides 40mT/m amplitude @200 T/m/s slew; or 78mT/m amplitude @100 T/m/s slew and 100% duty cycle. The research scanner is operated by two RT(R) certified research-dedicated MRI Technologists for safety screening, medical-grade handling and scanning of research subjects. The facility is also supported by research faculty skilled in MRI acquisition, image/data processing and customization of scan protocols to meet study requirements and can assist with HIPPA-compliant image/data transfer to UM investigators or external research core labs.
