Fast Response Thermistor for MRI

Request More Info
Part #: TSD202A-MRI

TSD202A-MRI employs a fast response thermistor and is appropriate for use in locations where temperature changes rapidly, as with the temperature changes of inspired/expired breath (not designed for liquid immersion). Interface with the MECMRI-TRANS cable-filter set to SKT100C.

For measuring skin (surface) temperature, simply tape the TSD202A-MRI to the location of interest.

For measuring airflow rate resulting from respiration, place the TSD202A-MRI next to the mouth or nose so that inspired or exhaled air will intercept the tip of the transducer.

  • Response time: 0.6 sec
  • Dimensions: 1.7 mm (dia) x 5 mm (long)
  • Replacement sensors available: RX202A-MRI

MRI Use: Conditional to 7T

  • Condition: Apply the TSD202A-MRI thermistor so that just the sensor portion is in contact with the skin. The insulated, conductive wire portion is typically routed away from the skin by sliding a piece of gauze, or cloth, between wire and the skin surface, prior to taping the transducer to the skin.

fNIR Education System Imager

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 […]
