How Do MRI Machines Work? An Introduction to MRI and Open Source Imaging

Douglas Brantner | HOPE 2022:

Superconducting, cryogenically cooled, terrifyingly strong magnets, bordering on perpetual motion; radio frequency (RF) coils big enough to crawl inside; fast switching, high power amplifiers to create hazardous levels of robot noises (and also flip around some magnetic fields). All in one giant Faraday cage. This talk will give a broad overview of the various technologies at work in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, as well as highlight some of the work of the OpenSourceImaging.org community.
