MRI

The ECTM co-owns a low magnetic field MRI scanner (0.25T G-scan Brio, Esaote SpA, Genoa, Italy). This scanner offers the possibility to rotate the subject, making it possible to scan in upright position. It was mainly designed for use in musculoskeletal research where weight bearing scans can give more insight into the severity or original of a certain discomfort. The scanner is used in both experimental and medical research. Furthermore, it is deployed in education in collaboration with the Magnetic Dection & Imaging (MD&I) research group.
