Research and clinical imaging platform

Clinical 3T MRI

Combisuite Magnetom Skyra 3T imager (intraoperative) unique in France

Siemens Healthineers company (Erlangen, Germany)

User interface : Syngo MR, VE11C version

Technical characteristics

Number of reception channels : 128

Tunnel diameter : 70cm

Gradients strength/slope : 45mT/m & 200T/m/s

Core : crâne 1H, 31P, 24Na, périphérie 1H,31P

This magnet is equipped with a full body transmitting coil, and array coils of up to 64 receiving elements distributed around the head and neck of the subject. By first, we propose the 64-channel coil for an optimal signal-to-noise ratio, but for difficult subjects (children, elderly, large heads), the use of a larger 20-channel coil is recommended.

In addition to the “product” sequences provided by the manufacturer, multinucleus spectroscopy, T1,T2, T2* mapping, perfusion MRI (ASL sequence), or simultaneous acquisition of slices in Echo-Planar imaging called “multi-band” are available, functional MRI (fMRI).


This equipment has been funded by european research uinds.
