MR image quality

We can perform testing of MR image quality, in terms of device influence to the MR system according to IEC 62464-1: Magnetic resonance equipment for medical imaging – Part 1: Determination of essential image quality parameters. The following values can be measured and evaluated:

  • Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (SNR)
  • B0-Homogeneity
  • Eddy current detection
  • Geometric distortion
  • RF noise signal detection
  • Interference to the RF signal properties
  • Interference by proton signals of plastics


MR:comp has developed a special image quality phantom, with which these parameters can be evaluated.
