Launching of the M-ONE european project
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université1, CEA2 and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
CEA Press Release (April, 3rd, 2020)Project M-ONE, with a 2 million euros budget allocated for two years, is the logical follow-up of H2020 M-CUBE European project, which has been successfully led by Aix-Marseille University since 2017. M-CUBE has identified two metamaterial technologies to homogenize brain images at 7T using metamaterials, removing image artefacts. M-One's project ambition is now to transform technologies developed within M-CUBE into concrete medical devices that will become the standard in ultra-high field MRI.
Ultra-high magnetic MRIs field represents an unprecedented opportunity for basic neuroscience and neurodegenerative disease research. However, the optimal use of these devices presents challenges, particularly in the field of radio frequency transmission3. Several options, such as parallel transmission, to overcome these challenges are being studied at Neurospin, the neuroimaging research centre of Joliot Institute at the CEA Paris-Saclay. To achieve this, the CEA will work, in particular, on the design of the antennas, the signal reception system and will continue to evaluate the prototypes at Neurospin.
