MR-Compatible Video Cameras

MRC's video cameras have been developed for the use in MRI scanners or anywhere in the intervention room of an MRI scanner. They have been tested in different environments ranging from 0.23 to 9.4 T.

We can equip the cameras with various lenses to optimise the field of view, magnification, and working distance for your application.

Product highlights

Typical applications

  • send videos from inside the bore of MRI scanners
  • can be used without interferring artifacts
  • easy installation and handling
  • compact design
  • video monitoring during functional MR imaging
  • eyetracking / observation in MR imaging systems
  • motion tracking
  • MRI diagnostic in pediatrics
  • room monitoring

The video cameras can be connected to a TV set, a VCR, or a video / frame grabber card in a PC. The camera module is based on a 1/3" B/W sensor in an MRI-compatible housing. Colour versions are also available.

The 12M module is very small and fits into almost any application. If you prefer having a distance between camera and object, a CS module with vario lens is recommended. See the different camera models below for details.

Our new digital camera models are available as high-resolution HD or high-speed cameras.

    White/IR light sources

    As an additional accessory we offer a flexible light source for MR compatible white or infrared illumination. The product is based on a compact LED that can be used e.g. as an illumination for eye-tracking. The light source can be ideally combined with the "12M" camera. Please check the manual for more information.
