Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 0.2T "DESKTOP" MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING SYSTEM (MRI) FOR HUMAN LIMBS OR SMALL ANIMALS AND MATERIALS. THE DESIGN IS BASED ON A PERMANENT MAGNET, THUS REQUIRING NO EXTERNAL POWER OR CRYOGENIC MAINTENANCE. BECAUSE OF THE MINIMAL FRINGE FIELD OF THE MAGNET, SUCH A SYSTEM CAN BE SITED IN NORMAL OFFICE SPACE. DURING PHASE I, A PERMANENT MAGNET WILL BE MANUFACTURED AND TESTED. THIS PROTOTYPE MAGNET WILL HAVE A FIELD OF 0.2T. PHASE I WILL ALSO INCLUDE SIMPLE NMR MEASUREMENTS TO MAP THE MAGNETIC FIELD, ADJUST THE SHIMMING, AND MEASURE THE ACHIEVABLE IMAGING VOLUME. PHASE II WOULD BE TO BUILD A COMPLETE IMAGING SYSTEM AROUND THIS MAGNET AND A SET OF PULSED GRADIENT COILS. FINALLY, PHASE III WOULD BE PRODUCTION OF A MRI DESKTOP SYSTEM.
