Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PERFORMING NEUROIMAGING
(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREIL D'EXECUTION DE NEURO-IMAGERIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to system and methods of performing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in awake animals. The invention utilizes head and body restrainers to position an awake animal relative to a radio frequency dual coil system operating in a high field magnetic resonance imaging system to provide images of high resolution without motion artifact.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés d'exécution d'imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM) sur des animaux éveillés. Afin de positionner un animal éveillé par rapport au système radiofréquence de bobine double fonctionnant dans un système d'imagerie par résonance magnétique de haute résolution afin de produire des images de haute résolution sans artéfacts dus aux mouvements, on utilise des appareils de contention de la tête et du corps de l'animal.
