Bipolar MRI Extension Kit

The multi-channel MRI Extension Kit offers a set of state-of-the-art tools for operating bipolar tES with any Starstim® system during Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Combining Starstim's tES with concurrent functional MRI (fMRI) allows for a detailed yet non-invasive examination of tDCS-induced effects throughout the brain.

  • With the sponge electrodes provided, the Bipolar MRI Extension Kit allows for the convenient execution of cathodal or anodal montages in the MRI chamber.

The installation of the kit must be handled by personnel specialized in shielding systems. Proper installation of each Filter is required; using the kit without a correct installation of the filter is dangerous.

Technical specifications:


  • Task-based functional MRI (fMRI)
  • Resting-state functional MRI (fMRI)
  • Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS)
  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG)

          Image Quality:

          • No effects on image quality in 3-tesla MR systems
          • No noticeable problems in 7-tesla fields

            Optimized for Safety:

            • tES devise always outside the MR cabin
            • MR-compatible (non-ferrous and radio translucent) electrode leads and electrodes
            • Radio-frequency filter (CA compatible with IEC 60601-1 requirement)
            •  Filtered currents flow through the ground
            • Faraday cage of the MRI room stays closed

            Synchronization of Acquisition:

            • tES Session Progress shared via Lab Stream Layer (LSL) outlets and TCP/IP port
