virtual-mri-nonfree – Virtual Magnetic Resonance Imager

[Note: non-standard licensing terms – please verify license compliance]

A realistic simulation of magnetic reasonance imaging that allows for exploring the most relevant parameters of a scanner to aid training of students and doctors.

At the moment the pulse sequence classes SR, IR, SE, TSE, FLASH and FISP are implemented. Parameters, like TR, TE, TI, flip-angle or echo train length, can be adjusted. The choice of matrix size, FOV, slice-thickness and number of acquisitions affect the signal-to-noise ratio of the images. In a first step, the simulation calculates the signal intensity in the k-space. Aliasing- and motion-artifacts are simulated by modifying the k-space data. In a last step, a 2D-fouriertransform of the k-space data is performed. Window and center of the resulting images can be changed.
