The essential characteristics of the MRI-B91 Air Cooled coil that limit the availability to a sole source are that they are parts that complete an advanced (higher resolution) MRI-compatible TMS system. They are newly-developed and available, and complete the elements of the system that were previously purchased. The original system enabled a TMS coil to be used in the scanner with a surface MRI coil, but the scanning cababilities of that MRI coil only allowed a fraction of the brain to be imaged, and our study requires full brain scans (something adding the supplemental coil makes possible). It was purchased to test the feasibility and capabilities of the MagVenture TMS/MRI system in our MRI scanner environment before committing to the full system. That testing has been successfully done, but only the completed system will serve to adequately carry out our study.
Only the suggested source can furnish the requirements needed to complete our MRI-compatible TMS system, to the exclusion of other sources, because the system is custom-built only by the MagVenture company, and the requested equipment parts are the only ones available and compatible with our present (incomplete) system.
