PURPOSE To introduce a newly developed polymer-based and magnetic resonance (MR)-compatible guidewire and to explore its capabilities with respect to interventional peripheral magnetic resonance angiography (ipMRA) in a flow phantom. MATERIALS AND METHODS The guidewire is based on a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer core, and small iron particles are embedded in its coating. A passive device tracking technique was designed utilizing a susceptibility artifact induced by the wire in images… CONTINUE READING
