CAI2R Researchers Speak at NIST Workshop on Standards for Quantitative MRI

Two of CAI2R's Senior Research Scientists, Riccardo Lattanzi, PhD, and Christopher Collins, PhD, will be speaking at the Standards for Quantitative MRI Workshop. This year the workshop will be held in Boulder, CO, from July 14-16th.


New IEEE BME Publication on Rapid Calculation of Temperature Changes

Giuseppe Carluccio, Danilo Erricolo, Sukhoon Oh and Christopher M. Collins published an article in the June 2013 edition of IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING:

An Approach to Rapid Calculation of Temperature Change in Tissue Using Spatial Filters to Approximate Effects of Thermal Conduction

SAR Average Tool

Systems transmitting electromagnetic waves need to satisfy safety requirements to prevent drastic change in temperature in the body tissues who are exposed to the waves. Some limits have been imposed to Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values to indirectly control the possible temperature increase into the body: these limits involve the local peak of SAR, the peak of the local averaged SAR on tissue volume of either 1-gram or 10-grams mass, the total absorbed SAR.
