National Microstructure Imaging Facility

Featuring a Siemens 3 Tesla CONNECTOM system – one of only three such systems in the world. This advanced system features 300 mT/m gradient coils which are typically 6 times stronger than those found in conventional MR systems. This allows researchers to probe tissue microstructure to much finer detail.

The Microstructure lab is also equipped with a field camera for characterisation of the gradient waveforms to correct the acquisition trajectory, and optical tracking system for the realtime measurement and prospective correction of participant motion.
