Recording Cardiac Output Measurements in an MRI

Acting to support researchers affiliated with UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, BIOPAC developed a specialized Noninvasive Cardiac Output amplifier module designed for operation in an MRI. The team successfully captured and analyzed impedance cardiography (ICG) from a subject during fMRI. Titled “Simultaneous acquisition of functional magnetic resonance images and impedance cardiography,” […]
