Dr. Rainer Goebel

“MAGNETOM Prisma has the power to lead to better expertise and innovative research in the future. Beside the improved gradient system, the 64-ch Head/Neck coil allows us to get better signals from the cortex and also cover the cerebellum and the neck very well. That allows exploring new research fields which are difficult to do on other 3T scanners.”1
