Case Study: Using FEKO® To Reduce Heating During MRI For Deep Brain Stimulation

Research at the Department of Medical Biophysics at the Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI) aims to develop and demonstrate the application of new technologies for brain imaging. A recent project focused on developing ways to try and safely image patients with Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), and reducing the heat created during an MRI as a result implant interaction with RF transmission fields. This case study details how FEKO® simulation software was used to create the electrical and magnetic fields required for imaging in an MRI environment. Download the case study for the full story.
