The decryption of the secret quality Greek signs - more than 2500 years old and still in use, - what they mean and where they appear in magnetic resonance technology.
Significant characters used to represent a quantity, an operation, a relation, or an abbreviation. All MRI-related and with the corresponding reference to the database description.
Units & Measurements
Magnetic resonance related values or magnitudes adopted as units or standards in physical measurements, with definitions according to the international system of units as well as information for their conversion.
Migrating or converting? Manufacturers use different acronyms for example for the same or similar sequence or measurement option. Here is a comparison.
Provides information about the design and the hardware components of MRI devices, as well as advantages and disadvantages of the different field strengths. The overview classifies more than 50 MRI systems according to their field strength, range of application, construction and type of magnet. Database entries provide additional information ( manufacturer, picture, device information, specification table, links to manufacturer brochures, etc. ) for each device.
