First published Thursday August 3, 2006
The University awarded a contract for the upgrade of an existing 3 Tesla MRI Scanner to GE Medical Systems, Milwaukee, WI for $143,540.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. The existing equipment was purchased in 1999 for approximately $3,000,000.

GE Medical Systems is the manufacturer of the existing equipment and the upgrade must be from the same manufacturer in order to assure full compatibility with all components. This upgrade is essential to improve image quality on MRI scans of patients and human subjects and also to enhance image reconstruction capabilities which are essential for advanced neuroimaging techniques.
