MRI Airflow

The TSD117-MRI is used outside the bore in the MRI Chamber Room and AFT7-L tubing is connected to reach the subject. Use coupler AFT11D to add tubing length (AFT7 or AFT7-L). TSD117-MRI Pneumotach Airflow Transducer (Medium Flow) The TSD117-MRI can be used to perform a variety of tests relating to airflow, lung volume and expired gas analysis. The […]

MRI Animal

BIOPAC has a wide range of devices that are suitable for monitoring small animals inside an MRI (see BIOPAC MRI Use declarations). The transducers and electrodes interface with the MP150 data acquisition and analysis system. BIOPAC has developed a range of filtered and isolated cables specifically for the MRI. The following signals can be recorded […]

MRI Biopotential Signals

MRI Smart Amplifiers Remove MRI artifact from the source physiological data MRI Smart Amplifiers remove most MRI related artifact at the source, so signals can often be sampled at the same rate as during non-MRI recording. Signal processors distinguish between the physiological signal and MRI artifact as manifested by gradient switching/RF pulsing during MRI sequences, […]

MRI CO2 (ETCO2) and O2 Respiratory Gas Analysis

Record end tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2), volume of oxygen consumed (VO2), volume of carbon dioxide produced (VCO2), and Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER) inside the MRI with the CO2100C carbon dioxide module and O2100C oxygen module. The CO2100C and O2100C respiratory gas analysis modules interface with longer lengths of gas sampling tubing to give breath-by-breath values […]

MRI ECG Recording

Record ECG, heart rate, and R-R interval from a subject inside a functional MRI with a BIOPAC MP150 data acquisition system. The AcqKnowledge software (included with the MP150) will identify the frequency of the MRI gradient noise and eliminate it from the physiological data. This can be done in real-time or during post processing. The […]

MRI Electrodermal Activity

BIOPAC recommends disposable electrodes for EDA (EDA, GSR, SCR & SCL) recordings—EL509 with GEL101 and LEAD108B or LEAD108C will provide excellent response signals. The electrodes work well on a variety of electrode placements: fingers, palm, and sole of the foot. The EL509 is a dry disposable electrode that requires GEL101 or a similar EDA electrode gel. Disposable […]

MRI Pulse Signal

TSD110-MRI Pressure Pad / Respiration Transducer Use the TSD110-MRI Pressure Pad / Respiration Transducer to record pulse and pulse rate—it requires no electrical connections inside the chamber and works on a number of body locations. To record the pulse waveform, position the TSD110-MRI transducer around the tip of the finger, or over one of the […]

MRI Respiration

BIOPAC offers three solutions for human respiration measurements inside the MRI. The respiration belt is the easiest and most reliable method, but the pressurer pad or fast response thermistor also work well. TSD221-MRI Respiratory Effort Transducer This MR Safe fully-pneumatic respiration transducer measures subject respiration (thoracic or abdominal) in the MRI. The extremely unobtrusive design presents […]

MRI Small Animal Monitoring

The BIOPAC MP160 System supports small animal MRI monitoring system for ECG, Heart Rate, EMG, blood pressure, respiration, temperature, pulse oximetry, CO2 and O2 gas analysis, electrical stimulation, and MRI triggering. BIOPAC has a range of options that can be used in the MRI for small animal monitoring. The modular MP160 system is configurable to meet […]

MRI Stimulus Options

Stimulation Use the STM100C with the STMISOC / D / E to deliver a variety of electrical stimulation paradigms. The AcqKnowledge software provides single pulse and trains of pulses for a variety of stimulus output options. The software also allows you to create arbitrary waveforms. Connect EL508 disposable electrodes and LEAD108B or LEAD108C RT leads […]
