For two types of passively visualizable magnetic resonance (MR)-compatible needles, the size of susceptibility artifacts was investigated at 0.2 and 1.5 Tesla (T) and assessed regarding their suitability for needle visualization. Phantom trials were performed using T1-weighted spin echo (SE), turbospin echo (TSE) and gradient echo (GE) sequences and… CONTINUE READING
