Abstract

Recognizing the need for greater resolution images produced from Magnetic Resonance (MR) technology, we designed an adaptable, rotating radiofrequency (RF) coil enclosure system specifically intended for knees. Machined out of magnetically transparent materials in the WPI Washburn labs, we used manual and automated mini-mills to fabricate a practical RF enclosure capable of ergonomically accommodating extremities and capturing images at virtually any angle on a single plane. Our prototype can accommodate a variety knee sizes and RF coil designs.
