Scanner Upgrade

This summer, the NYSPI MRI Research programming will be upgrading its scanner to the GE SIGNA Premier which will bring 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.

The upgrade start date is currently scheduled for 6/15/2018. The scanner will go down for equipment disassembly and pre-upgrade reliability and comparison testing on 6/1/2018.
