Metrolab is proud to support the MRI4ALL hackathon!

The MRI4ALL Hackathon aimed to jointly develop a fully-fledged low-field MRI scanner in just four days and to release all developed resources as open-source packages so that other groups can utilize them for their projects. 52 researchers from 16 different institutions participated in the hackathon, and they created a scanner named “Zeugmatron Z1” – in reference to the term “Zeugmatography” that was initially used by Nobel-price winner Paul Lauterbur when he invented MRI. The scanner is now operational, and the hackathon participants continue to improve it.

Metrolab Technology SA was happy to support the project by loaning a 3-axis Hall sensor THM1176-MF to Clarissa Zimmerman Cooley and Aaron R. Purchase, Ph.D. to map the magnet. Aaron makes his code for an automated field mapper using the THM1176-MF in GitHub under the repository /field_mapper_3DFM/

Note that Aaron already published his work previously: read more.

Thank you for your involvement in advancing science for all. We are looking forward to seeing your publications during ISMRM 24 in Singapore.
