Superconducting array of surface MRI probes

The Innovation

A resonating apparatus for use in magnetic resonance imaging or related fields including a number of closely packed, composite resonators where each resonator includes tabs adapted to from decoupling capacitors between the resonators and capacitive contacts for connecting each resonator to an MRI imaging instrument.

Competitive Edge

Resonators can be constructed to improve MRI imaging, while maintaining over 50% of the noise in each resonator relative to the noise contained in a region of the body being detected by each resonator.

Targeted Market

A niche market in high sensitivity and/or rapid MRI applications.
