OBJECTIVE The goal was to enhance a mobile magnetic resonance imaging system developed for neurosurgery. Components of the system included an actively shielded, 1.5-T superconducting magnet, a titanium operating room table, a radiofrequency (RF) head coil that could be disassembled, and local RF shielding. METHODS The system was designed and implemented by the Division of Neurosurgery, University of Calgary (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), in collaboration with the National Research Council of… CONTINUE READING
