Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/25/01 - 08/31/03

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): Cerebral blood flow (CBF) defines the rate of delivery of metabolic substrates and is central to brain metabolism. A non-invasive method for measuring regional cerebral blood flow is therefore important for assessing pathologies associated with alterations in cerebral metabol...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/00 - 03/31/01

The investigators plan to prove the feasibility of receive-only phased array coil technology for human brain MR imaging studies at high field strengths (3T-4T). Such a coil will be unique in high field human applications. Improvem...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/00 - 06/11/03

The increases in sensitivity of ultra-high field (3 and 4T) body MR imaging have been limited by the lack of efficient body RF coils to provide a uniform transmit and receive fields needed for uniform volume coil or receive-only surface coil imaging. In this proposal will demonstrate the feasibility of a high efficiency elliptic volume coil tran...
