MRI Safety

Metrology for next-generation safety standards and equipment in Magnetic Resonance Imaging


A Joint Research Project within the European Metrology Research Programme EMRP



The goal of this research project is to promote the safe use of MRI by providing the metrological underpinning for future safety standards and regulations. Specific topics of interest are:

  • The distribution of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields within the human body
  • Induced effects due to movements in the stray magnetic field of an MRI scanner
  • Emerging technologies 1: "Ultrahigh" magnetic field strengths and parallel transmission
  • Emerging technologies 2: Photon dosimetry for an MRI-accelerator combination
  • Metallic implants
