Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Philips- INTERA 1.5T. The MRI equipment (Philips Intera 1.5T) enables the acquisition –using non-invasive techniques- of high definition images of any body organ at different planes, focusing on large animals as experimental models.
The availability of high precision images during research activities enables the researcher to choose correct clinical treatment. This equipment is also used in the follow up of some R&D + innovation lines; during the post operative period of experimental subjects, i.e. in activities such as cellular therapy to measure the therapeutic effect or to evaluate implanted biomaterials.
Thus, this MRI system provides a reliable diagnosis and follow up of certain diseases, allowing the evaluation of state-of-the-art health technologies and their benefits and helping to establish their clinical indications.
