Enabling Low-cost MRI by Steering Resonance

Technology Area: Medical Devices

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) requires a powerful and extremely homogeneous magnetic field in order to produce images with high fidelity. The STEREO (STEering REsOnance) imaging sequence has a unique property allowing each region in space to be treated independently and thereby relaxing the requirement on magnetic field homogeneity.
