Scanner Upgrade

The  NYSPI MRI Research program is has finalized the upgrade to the GE SIGNA Premier which has brought with it a host of new improvements, including but not limited to: increased gradient coil performance, native multiband sequence support from GE with online near realtime reconstruction, as well as a wider 70cm bore and a new 48-Channel High Resolution head imaging coil.

We are currently scheduling select studies for November, and new studies based on approval and need. Please contact Joe Figliolia for details.*

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing MRI research data acquisition has been scaled down until further notice. We are currently operating on a limited basis, however scan time is available for groups who have been approved by the IRB to resume MRI Research.
