Leads – RT for MRI

Request More Info
Clip Lead, RT, u/sh, 1.8 m
Part #: LEAD108B, LEAD108C

Use LEAD108 Series leads in MRI/fMRI environments with radiotranslucent snap electrodes, such as disposable pre-gelled EL508 or disposable dry EL509.

For MRI use, shorter leads are better. To record any biopotential signal (e.g., ECG, EMG) in MRI, short leads such as LEAD108B (15 cm) and LEAD108C (30 cm) are recommended; do not use 2-meter or 1-meter leads for biopotential signals in MRI.

See BIOPAC MRI Guidelines for details.

MRI Use: Conditional to 9T

Condition: Up to 9T, any scanning sequence, use with EL508 or EL509 MRI/RT electrodes only. (See Specifications for components.)

Compatibility


Lead length when recording in MR environments is critical. Lead lengths must be kept much shorter than the wavelength of the Larmor frequency (42.6 MHz/T). For a 3T machine, this is the speed of light divided by (42.6*3*1E6) or 2.34 meters. As field strengths increase, then lead lengths should continue to shorten.

Cardiac Output amplifier

NICO Smart Amplifier

The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]

Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
