A compact, low-cryogen 3T MRI system with high-performance gradients has been developed and tested on healthy volunteers. This compact 3T MRI unit has the potential to dramatically impact MRI by offering simplified siting and strong gradient performance at lower cost. In addition to brain and pediatric imaging, the scanner offers an ideal platform for musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging of the extremities.
