BD-07: Open and quiet MR tomographs by new coil and gradient technology

Development of open and quiet MR scanners with new coil and gradient technology

This project deals with two issues relating to MR tomography which the patient views as bothersome. In current MR systems, MR signals are received by small local coils. Placing these local coils and keeping them in position takes time and is unpleasant for the patient. Development of an RBA (remote body array) will make local coils unnecessary for many examinations.

The second point is that the gradients induce magnetic eddy currents in the MRT magnetic system during an MR measurement; these are very noisy for the patient. The currents are to be minimized by means of a more precise investigation of the gradients.
