University of Minnesota Produces First Whole-Body 10.5 Tesla MRI

U of M scientists have become the first to scan the human body at 10.5 Teslas—an accomplishment that could help unlock new discoveries in neuroscience and other fields.

Researchers at the school's Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) conducted the imaging scans in December with the whole-body imaging 10.5 Tesla magnet. The magnet weighs 110 tons and has a magnetic field strength 10 times greater than a standard MRI.
