TDS-B1: Magnitude and Polarization Measurement in MRI Coil
Our latest video demonstrates ZMT's TDS-B1 to measure the polarization of the MITS3.0 birdcage resonator quickly and precisely. Two orthogonal time domain sensor (TDS) probes from our Z43 partner company SPEAG convert the incident radiofrequency magnetic field signals from the MITS to an optical signal, which is fiber-optically transmitted and opto-electrically converted by the remote units, captured by an oscilloscope, and transmitted to the computer where the polarization is computed and displayed. The full pulse train can also be seen in the time-domain view.
The TDS magnetic field probes can be used in free space or in loaded phantoms to measure the incident fields accurately in frequency or time domain, and they can operate inside harsh electromagnetic environments such as during magnetic resonance imaging scans.
Check out the video here and let us know if you have any feedback or are interested in learning more about the TDS-B1!
Congratulations to the IT’IS Foundation for the release of their most recent Virtual Population model - male Korean Jeduk cV3.1! This new phantom marks an important extension of the existing European ViP towards a global population representation. An enhanced, next-generation neuro-functionalized version of this phantom is expected for end of June.
Our annual ISMRM Sim4Life User Workshop will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 6:30pm – 8:45pm in the InterContinental Hotel, Montreal. Participants will be able to learn about how the design and optimization of MRI systems benefit from in silico methods, how MRI implant safety assessment are advanced by the latest improvements in IMAnalytics and MRIxViP, and experience the latest features of our comprehensive Sim4Life simulation platform. The detailed agenda will be published soon. If you are interested in participating please send us an email.
