MRI Trigger / R-wave Synch

AcqKnowledge MRI gating data ECG and respiration

Use the DTU100 Digital Trigger Unit to trigger an MRI System with the occurrence of the R-wave present in ECG, respiratory data or blood pressure for gating purposes. This external hardware module can accept data from any analog output associated with an MP System and convert that analog signal into a TTL compatible trigger suitable for synchronizing with external devices such as an MRI; the DTU100 is always used with the HLT100C  module.

Use the DTU200 (animal) and DTU300 (human) dual channel gating system for MRI applications. They send cardiac trigger pulses to the MRI when a respiration signal is in the quiet phase. Pre-processing filters and gain controls further refine the quality of the signal and ensure reliable triggering.

fNIRS High-Density Imaging Systems

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. The subject can sit in front of a computer and take a test or perform mobile tasks. Imaging System – fNIR103S: Imager […]
