Abstract

Here we describe the construction of our third generation x-space MPI scanner, the fifth MPI scanner built at UC Berkeley. The scanner has two goals, (1) High-resolution native MPI resolution using x-space reconstruction, and (2) extended FOV suitable for mice and rats. In this paper we describe our design criteria, and we show the initial characterizations of the 7 T/m gradient field.
