Ronald D Watkins, Harvey E Cline: Thermal imaging of fat and muscle using a simultaneous phase and magnitude double echo sequence. Txsonics, Bingham McCutchen, September 9, 2003: US06618608 (49 worldwide citation)

A method for magnetic resonance imaging includes applying a first two echo gradient echo sequence to a tissue region, the first two echo sequence generating a first echo and a subsequent second echo. A second two echo gradient echo sequence is applied after heating the tissue region, the second two ...

Otward M Mueller, Christopher P Yakymyshyn, Peter B Roemer, Ronald D Watkins: Preamplifier circuit for magnetic resonance system. General Electric Company, Marvin Snyder, August 13, 1996: US05545999 (17 worldwide citation)

A circuit for amplifying signals received by the receive coil of a magnetic resonance (MR) system includes a preamplifier employing an active circuit device, such as a GaAs-MESFET or HEMT. The preamplifier is located proximate to the receive coil in order to maintain as high a signal-to-noise ratio ...
