MR Test Objects


Eurospin System

MRI Test Objects - the "Eurospin II Test System"

These Test Objects are designed to be used for checking the image performance of MR Scanners with static fields in the range from 0.02 to 3 Tesla. The design was based upon Collaborative Research work within the framework of the Concerted Research project "Identification and Characterization of Biological Tissues by NMR" COMAC-BMU II 2.3 from 1984 led by Dr F Podo. It was further developed by a group led by Dr R A Lerski at Hammersmith Hospital Medical School.
