Molecular Imaging
Methods
MRI experiments are performed on a 400 MHz extra wide-bore Avance III HD NMR spectrometer with imaging accesories. The gradient system is able to achieve amplitudes of 100 G/cm.
Several microimaging coils with diameters ranging from 5 to 30 mm are used for rf excitation and detection. All coils are tunable to 1H frequency and some include a second resonator tunable to 129Xe and 23Na. The rf system includes two amplifiers for 1H/19F (100 W) and X-nuclei (500 W) excitation, respectively. A VT unit is available to run experiments at different sample temperatures.
A second probe head with animal bed and animal monitoring (ECG and respiration trigger, temperature monitoring) is available for live animal experiments.
