Paper Abstract

Until recently the idea of using permanent magnets for magnetic resonance imaging has been ignored in the literature. This paper discusses the technical aspects of the design of permanent magnets for whole body imaging and describes the differences between permanent magnet systems and those using resistive or superconducting electromagnets. Material properties, magnetic circuit characteristics, and the problems of scaling to whole body size are discussed. Also discussed are the problems of site preparation, maintenance and repair.
