## Basics of mriPresentation Transcript

• BASICS OF MRI Presented by:- Pranali. N. Kulkarni Ganesh M. Nair Aaditee S. Kulkarni Omkar Haldonkar
• MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING  Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to visualize internal structures of the body in detail.
• WHAT IS A SPIN????  Atomic nuclei with an odd number of protons behave like spinning particles which in turn create a small nuclear spin angular momentum.  This angular momentum of anµ : magnetic momentBo : magnetic flux density electrically charged particle such as the nucleus of a proton leads to a magnetic dipole moment.  These magnetic moments are referred to as SPINS.
• PRECESSION AND LARMOR FREQUENCY Acc. To electromagnetic theory , nucleus of H2 proton posses magnetic moments to align itself with the magnetic field in which it is field. This results in precession or wobbling of magnetic moment about the magnetic field with an angular frequency called Larmor frequency.
• N N Z Z X,Y X,YS S
•  MRI can be explained as interaction of spins with three magnetic fields
• BASIC STEPS OF MRI1) 2) 3)
• Z STEP 1 Mz STEP 2 M(t) STEP 3 Y MxyX STEPS OF MRI
• STEP 1 H Z MoMo= Equilibrium magnetization.Mz = Magnetization along z. Anytime themagnetization vector is displaced along z, it will becalled M.Mxy= Component of M that is in XY plane
• STEP 2M can be displaced by applying a magnetic field H1(rotating at Larmor freq of hydrogen nuclei) RF pulse causes: At the end of 90 pulse, M=Mxy and Mz=0
• STEP 3RF pulse is turned offMxy diminishes towards zeroand Mz increases from zero.After the 90 RF pulse,theRF coil is switched to receivermode.
• VOLTA FREE INDUCTION DECAY GE TIME
• FREE INDUCTION DECAY At room temp. more protons are in a low energy state. The excited proton tends to return to low energy state with a spontaneous decay. This decay is exponential in nature
