MRRC Installs New Prisma System

The MR Research Center has recently replaced one of their MR scanners with a new Siemens Magnetom Prisma system. The Prisma, which has a dedicated 64-channel head coil, is equipped with Connectome-level gradients for better neuroimaging. The purchase was made possible through the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study, a multi-site, prospective NIH-funded study that will follow 10,000 children over several years to determine the effect of drug use on the developing brain.
