T h e p e r f o r m a n c e o f s m a I I v o I u m e Magnetic Resonance Imaging ( M R I ) d e p e n d s on t h e s y s t e m n o i s e determined by noise of a probe and/or of a preamplifier (not by the body noise). Several demonstrations confirmed that, for selected applications, high-TC superconductor MRI receiver coils have superior properties to those of comparable copper coils.
