The Siemens 7T Terra is the first of the latest generation of 7T MRI scanners in the UK (and the third globally). The increased signal to noise relative to 3T scanners will allow higher resolution imaging, as well as better spectroscopic differentiation.
The scanner forms part of the UK7T network (alongside Nottingham, Oxford, Cardiff and Glasgow).
Standard sequences are under development, and the scanner is ready for some research studies in clinical populations. For details of the sequences currently in use and development please click here.
