Our Technology

Custom HTS coils

high-temperature superconducting coils
Custom-designed, receiving coils for small animal imaging applications at high fields based on ultra-high Q superconducting coils that improve SNR by more than 50% over cooled copper RF-coils

Cryogenic MRI probe 1

closed cycle pulsed tube cryocooler
A cryogenic RF probe based on HTS coils for high-field pre-clinical MRI, the pulsed tube closed cycle system with an animal bed, compatible with a 112/76 mm volume coil

Cryogenic MRI probe 2

liquid nitrogen cooled system
A cryogenic RF probe based on HTS coils for high-field pre-clinical MRI, liquid nitrogen 77 K G-10 cryostat with an animal bed, compatible with a 112/76 mm volume coil

Brain imaging

Superconducting MRI coils have been used for high resolution imaging of rat brain (collaboration with UTHSC)

Eye Growth Study

Counter-rotating current coils have been used to study monocular form-deprivation effects on the pattern of peripheral refractive errors and eye shape in infant rhesus monkeys (collaboration with UH Optometry)

Spinal cord

Superconducting MRI coils have been used for high resolution imaging of rat spinal cord (collaboration with UTHSC)

Colon cancer

Superconducting MRI coil 2×1 array has been used to acquire axial and coronal slices of subcutaneous tumors in murine model (collaboration with MDA)

Publications

Our team members have extensive experience designing and fabricating superconducting MRI coils
