No distortion was found to be at d = 30 mm, d = 30 mm and d = 200 mm for three different orientations of a copper cooling block.
The proposed setup supports the assessment of susceptibility effects induced by SPECT components. Our results demonstrate that the orientation and position of SPECT components in an MR environment need to be carefully taken into account during the design process of an integrated SPECT/MR device to avoid image distortion.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Program FP7/2007-2013 under grant agreement n° 305311.
