Glasgow-based product design consultancy Wideblue has participated in a project to develop next generation 7.0T MRI in order to provide new insights in brain disease research, assisting its client MR CoilTech to complete the first trial of high density radiofrequency (RF) head coil technology at the University of California. Wideblue ceo Russell Overend said: “When completed, the project will break through barriers in the field of brain disease research by introducing unprecedented levels of detail in brain imaging, which could lead to innovative new treatments.”
MR CoilTech director Dr Shajan Gunamony said: “We are delighted with the work Wideblue did on the CAD design of the prototype and with excellent initial results. It allowed us to meet the deadline for an important abstract submission.”
