A system for performing inline measurements of flow rate, density, and rheology of a flowing fluid is disclosed, comprising: (a) a rheology measurement subsystem comprising: a horizontal tube of internal radius r_(H); means for measuring a velocity profile of a test fluid flowing through said horizontal tube at a distance x_(0 )from its upstream end; and means for determining wall shear stress at a boundary between said flowing fluid and an inner surface of said horizontal tube; (b) a density measurement subsystem comprising: a vertical tube of internal radius r_(V )in fluid connection with said horizontal tube; a pressure sensor for measuring the pressure of said test fluid within said vertical tube at a location y_(1); and, (c) a pressure sensor for measuring the pressure of said test fluid within said vertical tube at a location y_(2 )downstream from y_(1 )and displaced vertically from y_(1 )by a distance h.


A protective cover for an open bore MRI is disclosed. The cover comprises a semi-permeable barrier, MRI shielding, and physical shielding; is at least partially transparent; and it comprises fluid connection means for providing a fluid connection between an inner open bore of said open bore MRI and an environment external to said open bore MRI. A camera operable in a MRI system is disclosed. The camera can be positioned adjacent to an RF shield (e.g., the protective cover) and external to a bore of the MRI system. The camera can generate an image of at least a portion of a patient during operation of the MRI system.

A premature neonate closed life support system (NCLSS) including: at least one chamber confining a cradle-like neonate support (CLNS) having suitable dimensions and geometric-configuration for accommodating at least one premature neonate having at least two operational configurations, said operational configurations comprising: a first operational OPEN configuration whereby said CLNS is adapted to couple said neonate to at least one life supporting system by means of at least one life supporting coupling line, prior to positioning said CLNS in a medical device; and a second operational air-tight CLOSED configuration whereby said neonate remains continuously coupled to said at least one supporting system by means of at least one life supporting coupling line, when positioning said CLNS within said medical device. The OPEN and CLOSED configurations are reversible.


A radiofrequency (RF) shielding conduits that can be embedded within a doorframe and/or a door of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) room are disclosed. The RF shielding conduits can form, upon closing of door onto the doorframe, an RF shielding channel to enclose and/or allow passage of tubing of medical equipment extending from an interior of the MRI room to an environment that is external to the MRI room, while providing a RF shielding of the MRI room.


A protective sleeve reduces electromagnetic energy propagation from the magnet bore of a magnetic resonance imaging device (MRD) to the surrounding environment and prevents electromagnetic energy in the surrounding environment from contaminating an MRI reading. The protective sleeve comprises a distal portion configured for insertion within the bore and a proximal portion attachable to the MRD aperture. The sleeve is configured for inserting a body part for insertion within the MRDs open magnet, with the imaged portion of the body part protruding from the distal end of sleeve into the MRDs volume of interest. The sleeve comprises, or is connected to, one or more sensors configured to detect movement, acceleration or dislocation of at least one portion or segment of the body part to be scanned.

A comparatively light and compact permanent magnet arrangement for an MRI apparatus has a pair of opposed permanent magnet arrays with a shimming system to adjust the uniformity and strength of a magnetic field in a central chamber of the apparatus. The MRI apparatus is used to examine the extremities of a patient to determine cardiovascular characteristics from an analysis of the blood flow through selected arteries in the extremity. The information collected can be used to calculate such characteristics as total cardiac output, blood flow, arterial wall thickness and elasticity and the presence of plaque.


The present invention discloses a method and systems for detecting a target biochemical molecular species whose main component is water. In one aspect, the method comprises steps of: (a) obtaining a sample whose main component is water; (b) providing Functionalized Paramagnetic Particles (FPP) comprising a paramagnetic core and a moiety configured to interact with the target biochemical molecular species; (c) contacting the FPP with the sample; (d) exposing the sample to an applied magnetic field; (e) measuring a change in a nuclear relaxation property of the sample, caused by the interaction between the FPP and the biochemical molecular species in the applied magnetic field; and (f) correlating the change to the presence of the biochemical molecular species in the sample. According to a main aspect of the invention, a change in T.sub.1 nuclear relaxation property of the water protons in the sample is correlated to the presence of the target biochemical molecular species.
