World’s most powerful MRI machines push the limits of human imaging

Latest MRI machines, developed in the US and in France and designed to operate under ultra-high magnetic strength thanks to giant superconducting magnets, should notably allow major advances in the understanding of neurological diseases.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) requires the use of magnetic field strengths in excess of 1 Tesla (T). This can only be achieved practically through the use of superconducting magnets. In most of MRI magnets, the superconducting coil is enclosed in a helium tan...
