Hand-held electronic teaching-aid for demonstrating MRI concepts.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe a hand-held electronic teaching-aid for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can be used to demonstrate the dependence of signal intensity on changing pulse sequence parameters (TR and TE), the dependence of intensity on changing tissue parameters (T1 and T2), and the ideas of "T1-weighting" and "T2-weighting" as they relate to image contrast. The device was specifically designed to be easy to use and readily accessible to residents-in-training and MR neophytes.
