Abstract:

A simple device to define reproducible reference points in MR examinations was designed. The device can be worn like a pair of eyeglasses and has reference structure visible in MR images. Combined with a specially designed algorithm, the imaging plane can be aligned to a predefined coordinate system in one step, using a single slice through the device. The device can be produced at low cost and is suitable for routine examinations as well as surgical planning.
