MR Coils participates in a European granted project called M-CUBE (M³: MetaMaterials antenna for ultra-high field MRI). This is coordinated by Aix Marseille University (AMU) and led by the Fresnel Institute and the Center for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine (CRMBM) together with 8 world-class academic actors and another very promising SME. The main objective of the project is to go beyond the limits of existing clinical imaging using an MRI scanner and radically improve spatial and temporal resolutions on image quality. The M-Cube solution relies on innovative systems using passive metamaterial structures to avoid multiple active elements. Physicists, medical doctors and industrial partners will work closely together for the duration of the project to create a patient centred solution that will pave the way for more accurate diagnostics in the context of personalized medicine and will enable the earlier detection of diseases and other conditions.
