Static Magnetic Fields I

24/02/2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am AEDT
Pullman Albert Park, 65 Queens Road
Melbourne, Victoria 3004 Australia

The interaction of static magnetic fields on paramagnetic and ferromagnetic materials is dependent not only upon the static magnetic field strength itself but also the magnetic spatial gradient, or the rate at which the magnetic field changes across space or across a device or i implant of foreign body. The relative spatial distribution of these […]

Static Fields III & IV

24/02/2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT
Pullman Albert Park, 65 Queens Road
Melbourne, Victoria 3004 Australia

While translational and rotational forces can be exerted by magnetic fields on ferromagnetic etc materials, Lenz’s forces can be exerted on any electrically conductive material. A discussion of Lenz’s forces, what causes them and how to safely manage them, will be presented.

RF Magnetic Fields : Diffuse power deposition

24/02/2019 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm AEDT
Pullman Albert Park, 65 Queens Road
Melbourne, Victoria 3004 Australia

Each RF pulse transmitted by the MR scanner deposits energy into the patient so exposed. The relationship between such RF pulses and patient core temperature is discussed. Mechanisms of human thermal autoregulation are also reviewed and their importance in MR imaging environments is emphasized.

RF Magnetic Fields: Focal Power Deposition/Burns Part I

24/02/2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDT
Pullman Albert Park, 65 Queens Road
Melbourne, Victoria 3004 Australia

While diffuse power deposition from RF pulses is exceedingly unlikely to cause any harm in MR environments, focal RF power deposition, or burns, are the most common non-pharmaceutical based adverse event reported associated with MR imaging units. In this section I introduce the idea that not all MR-related RF thermal injuries are the same. We […]

RF Magnetic Fields: Focal Power Deposition/Burns Part II

24/02/2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm AEDT
Pullman Albert Park, 65 Queens Road
Melbourne, Victoria 3004 Australia

This section completes the discussion that had begun in the prior lecture, and multiple clinical examples of various types of RF related focal thermal injuries, or burns, will be presented and analyzed. We will discuss how one can differentiate the type of RF thermal injury that transpired by the provided history as well as the […]
