Bruker Pharmascan 70/16
A 7.0 Tesla small animal magnetic resonance (MR) scanner was installed at the Vivarium, University of Bergen, in December 2004.
This MR scanner can be used for non-invasive diagnostic studies on small laboratory animals (rats, mice, small fish).
Pathological as well as physiological processes can now be followed in a precise manner in the animal body, by utilizing a set of MR imaging techniques combining visualisation, diffusion, perfusion and spectroscopy sequences.
The MR machine is specifically suitable for performing longitudinal studies of disease development and possible effects of treatment strategies.
