16-Channel Head Coil
Achieve optimal images of the head, neck, and the brain with the 16-channel MRI head coil from MR Instruments. This patient-friendly, open-face design MRI coil ensures some of the highest levels of signal-to-noise ratio for a 16-channel head coil, helping radiologists acquire detailed images of the brain while reducing patient discomfort and claustrophobia.
High-Quality Neuro Imaging
As a 16-channel device, this MRI head coil offers a 30 percent increase in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) compared to competitive 8-channel brain coils and combination head and neck coils. Multi-channel coil technology also serves to speed up the scanning times while also enabling parallel imaging in all three planes, both of which serve to increase patient throughput and improving image quality and detail.
With regards to parallel imaging, the MR Instruments 16-channel head coil is capable of the following:
16-Channel Head Coil Design
In addition to optimal performance, the MR Instruments 16-channel head coil offers the highest level of patient comfort with its open access design. In fact, the opening of this MRI head coil is 12 percent larger than most 8-channel coils, dramatically reducing claustrophobia while offering the extra space needed for headphones to further reduce patient anxiety.
Due to the larger size and internal diameter of the head coil, this 16-channel head coil can accommodate 99 percent of all adult heads. With its innovative, lightweight design (5.9kg with base), the 16-channel head coil facilitates easy coil movement and patient positioning.
The 32-channel MRI head coils are compatible with 1.5T GE and Siemens MRIs.
