Catheter tracking and visualization using 19F nuclear magnetic resonance.

Abstract

This work presents an investigation into catheter visualization and localization using 19F nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in conjunction with proton imaging. For this purpose, the imaging capabilities of a standard system were extended to allow for 19F excitation and signal detection. Two modes of operation were implemented: 1) a real-time tracking mode… (More)
