19 September 1985 Compact High Resolution MRI Phantom For Multislice Imaging
Author Affiliations +
Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) imaging is a new medical imaging technology with a great potential. A growing number of systems are available for clinical uses. While the quality of images from MRI scanners have been improving, methods by which the NMR imaging performance can be measured have been scarce in the literature. This paper describes a compact MRI phantom and the method that can be used to monitor the performance of MRI systems. The phantom was evaluated as we were completing the task of building the first high field 1.5 T whole body MRI system at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital during 1983 and 1984. During the period we felt a need for a phantom that is compact and all inclusive for quick evaluation of pertinent imaging parameters without the use of any time consuming image analysis routines. Particular attention had to be paid to study the multislice 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional imaging capability of MRI that are used in our lab.
