Other Equipment

Other equipment in the scanner rooms includes an Ohmeda Biox 3700 Pulse oximeter, a Sage 351 infusion/withdrawal syringe pump, and a Dinamap 1846 SX Critikon vital signs monitor.

Stimulus presentation and the recording of patient responses in the Siemens MRI suite are provided by an Eloquence System from Invivo. This system utilizes fiber-optic transmission of data across the Faraday Cage therefore avoiding electronic artifact in the imaging data. A shielded LCD screen within the scanner provides visual presentation, and an ergonomic 'keyboard' allows patients to respond in accordance with stimuli. Within the control room, a cabinet houses 2 CPUs which control all the processing related to running the Eloquence System.
