Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices can provide very detailed images of the human body without applying any ionizing x-ray dose.
Behind the scenes, MRI requires an advanced interaction of various electromagnetic (EM) fields. Thermal effects and mechanical forces also need to be known to have a successful design that meets the safety requirements.
In this e-seminar, learn about:
- The use of the Biot-Savart method in Opera obtain the required level of simulation accuracy
- Consideration of superconducting coil overheating using Opera
- The use of the Bioheat solver in CST Studio Suite as part of assessing the safety of the device.
- Coupling the EM results to a numerical spin simulator based on the Bloch equation
