FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of the University of Alberta’s new metamaterial liner for MRI excitation technology. This liner has improved receive sensitivity with fewer elements needed compared to a conventional loop array. The technology offers several benefits, including increased resolution for crisper images, reduced time for patients spent in the MRI machine, decreased claustrophobia, improved signal-to-noise ratio in images, and increased homogeneity.
This technology has applications in the field of magnetic resonance imaging equipment and resources. The global MRI equipment market is projected to experience substantial growth, with an increase from $7.12 billion in 2022 to $11.03 billion by 2029.
The University of Alberta’s MRI liner technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the University of Alberta team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
