Analytical full-wave free induction decay signal model for MRI

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific

Abstract

The derivation of the standard signal model in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is based on a quasi-static electromagnetic field approximation and is essentially obtained through an application of the Biot-Savart law [1]. Such an approach works fine for relatively low MR background fields (up till 1.5 T, say), but the model may lose its validity at higher static background fields, since the oscillation frequency of the electromagnetic radio-frequency fields is linearly related to the magnitude of this background field via the well-known Larmor equation [1]. Consequently, an increase in the strength of the static background field leads to an increased Larmor frequency and the quasi-static field approximation may no longer be applicable.
