PURPOSE To examine gradient switching-induced heating of metallic parts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Copper and titanium frames and sheets ( approximately 50 x 50 mm(2), 1.5 mm thick, frame width = 3 mm) surrounded by air were positioned in the scanner perpendicular to the static field horizontally 20 cm off-center. During the execution of a sequence (three-dimensional [3D] true fast imaging with steady precession [True-FISP], TR = 6.4 msec) exploiting the gradient capabilities (maximum gradient… CONTINUE READING
