The purpose of the study is to evaluate the suitability of a novel RFID-based tracking system for intraoperative MRI. Therefore the spatial accuracy and SNR according to the NEMA standard MS 1-2008 was quantified. The installation of an RFID system including transponders and receivers in the magnet room in close distance to the magnet has low of non-relevant influence on MRI. However the spatial accuracy have to be improved for an application as tracking system in intraoperative MRI.
