Peripheral nerve stimulation by gradient switching fields in magnetic resonance imaging

  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering},
A heterogeneous model of the human body and the scalar potential finite difference method are used to compute electric fields induced in tissue by magnetic field exposures. Two types of coils are considered that simulate exposure to gradient switching fields during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These coils producing coronal (y axis) and axial (z axis) magnetic fields have previously been used in experiments with humans. The computed fields can, therefore, be directly compared to human… CONTINUE READING
