Paper Abstract

The architectural design of an image processing system and its instrumentation is elucidated here in this presentation, based upon the multiprocessing TMS320C82 DSP processors, working under a specially-defined MAEVRISC-DSP (Multidimensional Application-Embedded Vector RISC-DSP) architecture, that blends high-precision and high- performance (120 MFLOPS digital and 100 MSPS analog) data acquisition with efficient signal processing architecture design and prevalent Tagged MRI pulse sequence algorithms, specifically optimized for the medical imaging applications of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging (MRI) tomography, while at the same time giving a low-cost alternative to extremely-expensive MRI systems. Alongside the system definition, the design of a new magneto-optical instrumentation is also presented, named SQUID and LPDA- based Field Equalization and Susceptibility Detection sensing, which works upon the recently-defined Tunneling Photon Resonance effect, mainly devised with non-ionizing human brain tumor diagnosis and localization in perspective, whose brief account is highlighted here.
