  • Researchers Improve Popular MRI Coil Using an Artificial Magnetic Shield

    In the future, this breakthrough will help boost the accuracy of MRI scans and enlarge the MRI chamber in order to improve the patient experience. Results of this research may also be put to use in research-purpose high-field MRI systems.


  • Max Planck Institute Scientist Nikolai Avdievitch on New MRT Devices and Opportunities They Offer

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technology that produces detailed images of organs and tissues based on the magnetic nuclear resonance (MNR) technology. Developed several decades ago, the technology is now extremely widespread and available in many modern clinics. However, researchers continue working on improving its accuracy and developing new, more efficient systems. Nikolai Avdievitch, a senior research associate at the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen (Germany) and leading specialist engaged in the development of new sensors for experimental MRI systems, recently taught a course for the students of ITMO University’s Master’s program “Radiofrequency Systems and Devices”, and shared with ITMO.NEWS about his work and the latest research in the field of MRI.
