SPINlab Hyperpolariser

Located adjacent to the PET/MR scanner, the SPINlab hyperpolariser can provide an increase of signal-to-noise for labelled atoms (carbon-13) of more than 10,000 fold. This allows for real-time tracking of metabolism which is impossible with conventional magnetic resonance techniques.
