The MAGNUS‡ gradient platform: advancing the field of neuroscience
MAGNUS (Microstructure Anatomy Gradient for Neuroimaging with Ultrafast Scanning), a collaboration between GE HealthCare, GE Global Research Center and USU, is an advanced gradient MR platform designed to improve diffusion imaging at high b-values without significantly increasing peripheral nerve stimulation or incurring SNR loss. The team designed the MAGNUS gradient system for greater efficiency, resulting in higher maximum gradient amplitude while controlling the inductance to achieve high slew rates with rapid EPI switching and shorter TEs for increased SNR and decreased distortion.
