Low-Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Beagle Brain with a Dedicated Receiver Coil

Vet Radiol Ultrasound, 1999. 40(1): p.36-9.

A specially designed radio frequency receiver coil was used in a low-field-strength (0.1 T) magnetic resonance imager to improve the image quality of the Beagle brain. The aim was to obtain better distinction of anatomic details with a better signal-to-noise ratio in shorter imaging time. The spin-echo (TR/TE = 1200/100; TR is the repetition time and TE is the echo time in ms) brain images of three Beagles indicate that the new receiver coil can fulfill these goals.
