The central goal of this project is the pre-development of RF coil and patient positioning demonstrators for a compact 1.5T magnetic resonance tomograph, which is suitable for installation outside a radiology department close to the patient (for example in an intensive care unit for newborns and premature infants). Due to the constant availability of imaging, patients can be examined when it is appropriate for them and the requirements for - sometimes very risky - transport are significantly reduced.

The technical objectives include the design of a transmitter/receiver coil with a small wall radius as well as concepts for SAR monitoring, the integration of an incubator and patient positioning and monitoring.

The realization of the research project in cooperation with Neoscan Solutions GmbH and Otto von Guericke University (OVGU) takes place at the research campus STIMULATE.
