C.J.Gorter Center for High-field MRI

General Information

The C.J.Gorter Center for High Field Magnetic Resonance was opened in the autumn of 2007. Its mission is to develop new techniques for high field clinical applications of MRI. Facilities include a Philips Achieva 7 tesla whole body MRI, as well as access to 3 tesla and 1.5 tesla Philips research scanners and 9.4 tesla and 17.6 tesla Bruker animal systems.

Current Projects

  • Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI)
  • High frequency RF coil development
  • Cardiac imaging
  • Perfusion imaging
  • Muscle spectroscopy
  • Cartilage imaging
  • Ex vivo imaging of Alzheimers plaques

SAMENWERKING


Research

Samen met diverse onderzoekinstellingen en specialismen binnen en buiten het LUMC. Daarnaast wordt er samen met industriŽle partners wetenschappelijk onderzoek verricht door middel van het ontwikkelen van software.

Opleiding 

In samenwerking met de TU Delft, de Hoge school “INHolland”, het HagaZiekenhuis, het Medisch Centrum Haaglanden(MCH) en het Rijnland ziekenhuis.

PatiŽntenzorg

Samen met andere Universitair medische Centra (Zie  NFU_Portal ) en regionale ziekenhuizen. Voor neurologische interventies met het Neurovasculair Centrum West.
