Pulsed magnetic field gradients in magnetic resonance imaging produce high levels of acoustic noise. In functional magnetic resonance imaging, acoustic scanner noise causes unwanted masking effects. Recently, we proposed a method to perform magnetic resonance imaging experiments undisturbed by acoustic scanner noise by utilizing the property of standard gradient coils to poorly submit acoustic noise in the low frequency range. The silent gradient scheme is now incorporated into a standard T 2… CONTINUE READING
