Delta relaxation enhanced magnetic resonance (dreMR) is an emerging method for field-cycled MR imaging, which utilizes a removable electromagnetic coil to modify the strength of the main magnetic field during an MRI pulse sequence. This abstract describes major improvements made in a new, high-performance, second-generation dreMR system for mouse and small animal imaging. Comparisons are made between this second-generation dreMR coil and the prototype dreMR coil used in early dreMR studies.
