MR Compatibility of Mechatronic Devices: Design Criteria

  title={MR Compatibility of Mechatronic Devices: Design Criteria},
  author={Kiyoyuki Chinzei and Ron Kikinis and Ferenc A. Jolesz},
Criteria to design MR (Magnetic Resonance) compatible mechatronic devices, e.g., surgical robots, are discussed. Some of critical interactions between MRI and mechatronic devices are discussed. Experimental results of the effects from several passive and active mechanical elements are demonstrated. Some passive elements, e.g., ball screw and linear guide have point contacts therefore, they are required to be made of hard smooth surfaces. Both beryllium-copper and a new stainless steel were… CONTINUE READING
