Cardio Respiratory Gating System - ECG
Part #: GATE-CARD-EL, GATE-CARD-E

Complete Dual-Channel Gating Systems

These gate systems provide the cardiac trigger via an MRI Smart Electrocardiogram Amplifier (ECG100C-MRI) and include an MP160 data acquisition & analysis system with AcqKnowledge software, dual-channel cardiac respiratory gating system (DTU200 in small animal or DTU300 for human or large animal), MR Safe respiration transducer (TSD110-MRI), and cables, electrodes, and leads.

Compatibility


MP160 Data Acquisition Hardware—Ethernet-ready data acquisition and analysis unit can record multiple channels with differing sample rates; record at speeds up to 400 kHz (aggregate).

AcqKnowledge provides automation tools for artifact frequency removal, artifact projection removal, median filter artifact removal, and signal blanking.

MRI Smart Electrocardiogram Amplifier records electrical activity generated by the heart and will reliably record ECG from humans or animals. The amplifier output can be switched between normal ECG output and R-wave detection. The R-wave mode outputs a smoothed pulse with the occurrence of each R-wave. The exact timing of the R-wave is detected even under conditions of extreme signal artifact.

Respiration Transducer requires no electrical connections inside the chamber and works on a number of body locations. The multipurpose assembly can be used to noninvasively measure pulse, respiration—from a small mouse to a human, small pressing forces (like pinching fingers together) for Parkinson’s evaluations, human facial expressions (smiling, frowning, etc.), spacing and pressure between teeth coming together, or startle blink response.

Dual channel gating system works for small animal (DTU200 in -E) and human (DTU300 in -EL) MRI applications. It sends cardiac trigger pulses to the MRI when a respiration signal is in the quiet phase. Additional filters and gain controls further refine the quality of the signal and ensure reliable triggering.

fNIR Imaging Education System

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. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
