NYU School of Medicine attracts a powerful MRI machine

ular imaging allows researchers to look at more of the fine details of the brain itself. In Dr. Helpern's laboratory, for example, high-field MR is being used to identify plaques in the brain that are one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. It is hoped that the ability to identify these plaques with a technique that is "noninvasive" will lead to earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's than is now possible, and therefore to earlier and more effective treatments.

"There is so much more that we will be able to do with a 7-Tesla magnet," says Dr. Helpern. "We will be one of the few places in the world with this kind of capability."

Siemens and NYU School of Medicine
The 7 Tesla magnet, which will be used only for research purposes, is being brought to the School of Medicine as part of a seven-year collaborative agreement with Siemens Medical Solutions, U.S.A that will make NYU Medical Center one of the nation's premier imaging centers. The agreement makes Siemens the Medical Center's exclusive supplier of a wide array of highly advanced imaging equipment for research and clinical care.
