SIGNA(TM) Premier


Generous funding from the Novo Nordisk Foundation and DTU made the purchase of a state-of-the-art 3T scanner possible 

MR scanners

At DTU, we have a state-of-the-art clinical MR scanner. It is a 3T multi-nuclear GE SIGNA™ Premier, in the heart of DTU Health Technology in building 204 flanked by operation rooms for large animal research and as direct neighbor to the small animal stables. A SpinAligner polarizer is installed next to the MR scanner for hyperpolarized MR studies.

For the MR section this provides a platform for clinical translation and a strong facility to bring our expertices in metabolism, neuroimaging and image computing together. Our teaching and research  benefits from the new capability of scanning healthy human volunteers. Our hardware and software development is boosted with the possibility for in house scanning.

This new clinical and animal MR imaging facility bridges several of our department flagships opening for cross DTU and outside world partnerships.

Through close collaborations with the leading university hospitals in Denmark, we also have access to their MR research infrastructure, e.g.

  • Siemens PET/MR with clinical General Electric polarizer (SPINlab) at Copenhagen University Hospital through our collaboration with the PET/MR Center at Rigshospitalet
  • 3T and 1.5 T clinical scanners from various vendors with Clinical General Electric polarizer (SPINlab) at Aarhus University Hospital through our collaboration with MR - Research Centre at Aarhus University
