According to a new plan by UC Berkeley, it's about $13.4 million dollars to build a new generation MRI brain scanner.
UC Berkeley was awarded this amount by the National Institute of Health with the BRAIN Initiative grant to support neuroscience work and development. This new MRI brain scanner will be a 7T scanner, as seems to be the trend when it comes to MRI research, as shown in some of our previous blogs.
One of the reasons behind this build is to get better quality images; it's been noted usually the higher the Tesla, the higher quality the image when it comes to MRI scanners. The brain is already a complex system as it is, so using a high definition scanner is the solution to see these intricacies. UC Berkeley anticipates completion in 2019.
Here at Sound Imaging, we know most of us don't have millions lying around for an MRI scanner. This is why it's important to invest with repair and maintenance options when it comes to your MRI scanner. Here we offer cost-effective and budget friendly options for MRI repairs, MRI parts, and MRI services, like maintenance and installation.
