A unique MRI flow laboratory is currently being commissioned at the University of Rostock. The laboratory is specifically designed for quantitative measurements in technical flows. The MRI system, a whole-body Magnetom Trio (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany), will be integrated into various flow circuits with water and other fluids. This MRI system is not intended for clinical trials. Instead, the research focuses on the development and validation of flow quantification methods for medical and technical applications. The long-term aim is to make MRI more available to the field of fluid mechanics research and flow engineering.
