Paper Abstract

A description of the nuclear magnetic resonance imaging system at Stony Brook with whole body capabilities based on a .1 Tesla air-core magnet with a 62 cm bore will be given. Important considerations for full three-dimensional (3D) imaging from projections include static field homogeneity, linear field gradient strength and uniformity, adequate trans-mitter and receiver capabilities and rapid data collection and processing. Preliminary results of our efforts to achieve a flexible system with potential clinical applications will be shown along with images of the head and breast from living human subjects. Since the 3D image has isotropic resolution, the image may be viewed from any desired direction.
