The MR center
The MR center is a core facility that handles the MR research capacity at the neuroradiology clinic. It is equipped with a 3 Tesla GE MR750 Discovery owned by Karolinska institute thanks to a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in 2010.
Here you can find updates and information about MR center: organisation, wiki, courses, events, etc.
To all people scanning at MR centrum:
The advice from The Public Health Agency of Sweden applies: avoid close contact, wash hands often with soap and stay at home if yoiu have disease symptoms. At the MR center this means:

2 - Clean with disinfection solution everything that had been or will be in contact with the participants (MR scanner bed, button boxes, etc).
3 – One participant at a time in the MR-centrum, no group of people.
