Abstract

Magnetic resonance image (MRI)-guidance for minimally invasive interventions instead of CT-guidance is a promising technique to reduce radiation exposure for both patients and clinicians. Technical challenges have to be managed in order to meet safety regulations while enabling inroom system control and communication. Using nonproprietary software and hardware, several gradations for a setup for interventional MRI were elaborated. Eventually, a quickly and easily installable setup was established for technical support during MRI-guided interventions in the PET/MRI suite at the Department of Nuclear Medicine at University Hospital Leipzig. It is adaptable for most MRI suites.
