Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) devices can provide very detailed images of the human body without applying any ionizing x-ray dose. Behind the scenes, MRI requires an advanced interaction of various electromagnetic (EM) fields. Thermal effects and mechanical forces also need to be known to have a successful design that meets the safety requirements. This eSeminar will show the central role that multi-physics multi-scale simulation has to play in MRI device design.
