Basic MR Safety: SAR to Temperature, Power Deposition/Monitoring, Effects of RF Coils & Field Strength

Yigitcan Eryaman

This lecture will cover basic safety issues related to MRI, focusing on power deposition and radio-frequency heating in the patients. Specific absorption rate (SAR) and its relation to temperature will be discussed. Various methods to simulate, predict,control and mitigate SAR and temperature will be introduced. Finally, the effects of RF coil geometry, field strength/frequency will be explained.
