Elara 7T

Head shim coil array

Elara 7T

Head shim coil array (16, 24 or 32 shim elements) for 7T MRI scanners mountable on cylindrical RF coils (as shown).

CAUTION: Not a medical device. Limited by Federal (or United States) law to investigational use.

The Elara 7T is a shim coil array for neuroimaging at 7T MRI scanners. The shim coil array has different realisations with either 16, 24, or 32 shim elements. A custom number of shim elements can be manufactured upon customer request. The shim coil should be mounted on the RF coil and is compatible with cylindrical head RF coils (e.g. NOVA Medical* RF head coil).

The shim coil has multiple interconnecting modules for ease-of-installation and easy detachment from the RF head coil. Each module is thin (~10mm) and light-weight (~0.5kg). The shim coil has negligible impact of the RF coil performance (less than 1% difference for RF receive and RF transmit efficiency). The shim elements are optimised to minimise induced e.m.f. and eddy currents while maximising efficiency.

Compatibility with custom RF coils can be manufactured upon customer request.
