High Field Magnetic Resonance Engineering (2008–2012)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is rapidly becoming the medical imaging modality of choice for soft tissue injuries. To improve the quality and nature of images, MRI technology is moving rapidly to high field systems. Many problems remain unsolved for high field systems. The major aim of this project is to contribute to the next generation of High Field MRI systems through technical innovation. New patient-centric engineering design methods will be developed and used to generate novel architectures for high field MRI systems. This will not only produce significantly better images and consequent improved diagnosis but will also improve patient safety.
