This project is about building an MRI as a personal hobby. The project is to build a desktop-sized MRI that is inexpensive, reproducible by anyone, and redesignable. Due to its small size, it cannot be used for human medical diagnosis, but it will be able to scan human hands, feet, small animal bodies, etc. in 3D.

The design is done using MATLAB, which allows the designer to focus on the design and calculation of the MRI.

・Numerical optimization
・Numerical analysis

Electronics is necessary to construct the electronic circuits inside the MRI. Electromagnetics and numerical optimization are required to design the main coil and gradient coil, and MRI coils need to be optimally designed to find the best shape by computer, not by human hand. In order to validate the designed circuits and coils, MRI simulations need to be created, which requires skills in numerical analysis.

Enjoy this project?

I can't wait to build this for myself. I am SUPER interested.

Amazing. I look forward to building one, if/when instructions become available.

What is the max intensity of B_0 that you can generate with this design?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Wow, as a vet this would be an amazing thing to have!

When will you consider a person-size MRI?  Head-size?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Do you plan on providing details - theory of design, references to design sources, thoughts behind why you chose your particular design (particularly interested in the field-coils and the theory behind them), Interaction of the coils with the gradient coil and the other coils top/bottom and side of the chamber, the math, the software. Deets, dude. Deets.

Wow that's neat. how far are you from getting an image ?

  Are you sure? yes | no
