QSENSE fMRI SYSTEM
Portable and easy-to-use air-cooled fMRI thermal stimulator for your pain imaging protocols
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has become a valuable tool for objectively quantifying cerebral responses to pain intensity, advancing our knowledge of how pain affects brain structure and activity.
Based on the portable and versatile Q-sense device, the Q-sense fMRI System allows pain stimulation in the fMRI environment.
Plug-and-play setup in the MRI scanner suite
Available in both single and dual fMRI thermode models, with the latter facilitating simultaneous or sequential stimulation at two different body sites
Versatile programming of stimulation parameters, precise and accurate results recording
3 and 7 Tesla compatible
Validation tests demonstrated no imaging artifact
Q-Sense fMRI thermodes are non-ferrous and incorporate airflow for system temperature control,
a new technology requiring no coolant or pump for operation.
Evaluation of the Q-Sense fMRI System as an MR Conditional device was subjected to testing at the Erwin L. Hahn Institute at Essen, Germany – which hosts one of the world’s few 7T MRI scanners. Validation runs on both 7T and 3T MRI scanners.
The Q-Sense fMRI System passed the MRI scanner manufacturer QA testing and functional imaging test runs, showing no imaging artifacts or detectable electromagnetic interference noise.
