Due to the developments related to the corona virus, Scannexus has opened its facilities to scan on human patients and research participants from 08 AM - 05 PM during office hours. Scanning outside office hours, is possible in consultation with us. Please find our COVID-19 related guidelines here.
Scannexus facilitates researchers, clinicians and industry in formulating and answering their research questions. We offer a combination of state-of-the-art clinical imaging technology and expertise in MRI operations and development, experimental designs and data analysis. Through this, we provide a full support package for imaging-related research. You provide the question, we support your search for the answer.
The core elements of the Scannexus facility are three Ultra High-Field whole-body clinical MRI scanners, supplied by Siemens; a 3T Magnetom Prisma, a 7T Magnetom and a 9.4T Magnetom.
Scannexus offers you a unique combination of services and technologies. Access to world-leading Ultra High-Field MRI scanners (3T, 7T, 9.4T), is combined with dedicated customer-focused operational support, and the expertise of our clinical and technical networks.
Super MRI Study on Urinary Incontinence
In collaboration with the department of functional neuro-urology from MUMC+ (Maastricht) and Erasmus MC (Rotterdam), we have been awarded with the NWO ‘humane meetmodellen’ grant, that will support ultra-high field MRI research into the neural mechanisms involved in bladder control. In previous years, Scannexus and the dept. of neuro-urology have successfully partnered by studying how regions in our brain stem and spinal cord work together while our bladder fills up. This grant will further these developments by focussing on the overactive bladder syndrome, to discover if this disease is caused by neural malfunctioning. This could guide future treatment.
