xMR Labs - About Us

The xMR Laboratory is primarily focused on the imaging modality of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), where we work to develop new techniques and improve upon existing technologies for imaging inside the human body.

With access to many systems (GE, Seimens, Varian) at multiple field strengths (1.5, 3.0, 7.0, and 9.4 Tesla), as well as the ability to simulate and measure electromagnetic effects, we are able to assess the MR Safety and Compatibility of any medical device to ASTM Standards.

We have an active practical research program that involves modeling, design, construction and testing of various magnets and devices that challenges students and old hands alike.
