Paper Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive technique providing superior diagnostic information to the clinician. Unfortunately, physiological monitoring of patients in MR scanners is complicated due to the presence of radio frequency (RF) fields and static and switched gradient magnetic fields (Shellock FG1986). In the proximity of MR scanners, conventional electronic monitoring instrumentation has been found to malfunction.
