2D-3D_1H/31P _MRSI 7T  study

Hello all,

I’m searching for Volunteers for my 2D and 3D 1H/31P MRSI study.

Our group is developing new techniques for mapping brain metabolism at a fast speed by exploiting the next generation of MRI scanners.

To improve and develop new MRI techniques, in vivo experiments are crucial for optimizing contrast and resolution.

The measurements are conducted at the Campus Biotech in Geneva at a unique 7T MRI scanner. During the scan, you could listen to music or watch movies according to your preference.

The MRI session will take around 1:30h, splitting into a 20min preparation period and a 1:10h MRI measurement.

The remuneration will be 50CHF.

Additionally, you could view your brain images directly on the scanner after the scan, and take a copy of the images with you if you are interested!

So if you are interested in gaining real-life MRI experience, witnessing MRI research in practice, or seeing pictures of your brain, come join us.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested!

Volunteers should be / have :

  • healthy adults (age 18-40 )
  • non-claustrophobic
  • no psychological disease (depression, schizophrenia, …)
  • no tattoos in shoulder and head region
  • no non-removable piercings
  • no bracelets
  • no metal parts in the body (e.g., exposure to metal fragments)
  • no IUD (Intrauterine contraceptive device)

If you have any question regarding safety or screening, don’t hesitate to send an email.
