Computational dosimetry of induced electric fields during realistic movements in the vicinity of a 3 T MRI scanner.

Abstract

Medical staff working near magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are exposed both to the static magnetic field itself and also to electric currents that are induced in the body when the body moves in the magnetic field. However, there are currently limited data available on the induced electric field for realistic movements. This study computationally… (More)
