HKBU Life Science Imaging Centre


The University has procured a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility (model: MAGNETOM Prisma1) as a major research infrastructure or central research facility to promote individual and collaborative research on transdisciplinary neuroscience studies. The system is equipped with:


  • high gradient performance (80 mT/m @ 200 T/m/s simultaneously, on all three axes) with an ultra-high-performance cooling system and force-compensated design for reduced vibrations;
  • fully dynamic parallel transmit with TimTX TrueShape
  • Tim 4G RF system with 48, 64, or 128 independent channels for faster imaging and higher SNR
  • new UltraFlex 18 coils and Tim 4G coil technology
