The Dutch National 14Tesla MRI Initiative in Medical Science
2023 until 2033
Project member(s)
Prof. D.G. Norris (David)
Project type

The Dutch National 14Tesla Initiative in Medical Science will establish the first MRI system at this field strength in the world. It will provide a national and international resource that will help cement the leading position of the Netherlands in ultra-high field imaging techniques and their application in Medicine and Neuroscience. The additional sensitivity afforded by the system combined with the improved ability to discern metabolite signals will offer scientists a powerful instrument for better characterization of a range of diseases and new insights into the workings of the brain.
