Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) thermometry

We are creating a powerful tool for improvements in surgeries of the brain and spine. A new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine will be used inside operating rooms so patients undergoing surgery can be imaged in the middle of the surgery for quality control. For instance, surgeons can obtain an MRI to ensure the entire tumor was removed before ending the surgery. Beyond surgery, low field MRI has many exciting applications to improve treatment options. A technique called MR thermometry can map the temperatures of tissues inside the body. This helps for monitoring of treatments from ultrasound, laser, or microwave heating techniques.
