Compact, desktop MRI systems enable biologists to benefit from the 3D morphological imaging benefits of MRI without the cost, complexity and expertise required to operate high-field superconducting MRI systems. Dr. Johnson details many of these benefits and provides specific details on the use of the M2 compact high-performance MRI system for longitudinal studies of mice models of Human Colorectal Carcinoma and Glioblastoma.
NOTE: This presentation described the Aspect Imaging M2™ compact high-performance MRI system. The system is now available as the Bruker ICON, the standard in pre-clinical compact MRI platforms. The ICON uses Aspect Imaging’s compact magnet, gradients and animal handling systems.
