- Radio frequency shielding for a linac-MRI systemM Lamey
Department of Physics, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 2G7, Canada
Phys Med Biol 55:995-1006. 2010..This work illustrates that the accelerating structure of a linac and an MRI can be housed within the same RF cage. The 6 MV linac can be operated to produce radiation with no measurable degradation in image quality due to RF effects...
- Radio frequency noise from an MLC: a feasibility study of the use of an MLC for linac-MR systemsM Lamey
Department of Physics, University of Alberta, Alberta, T6G 2G7, Canada
Phys Med Biol 55:981-94. 2010..This study illustrates that the small RF noise produced by functioning MLC motors can be effectively shielded to avoid SNR degradation. A functioning MLC can be incorporated into a linac-MR unit...
- Radio frequency noise from clinical linear acceleratorsB Burke
Department of Physics, University of Alberta, 11322 89th Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 2G7, Canada
Phys Med Biol 54:2483-92. 2009..This study suggests that the RF emissions are strong enough to cause image artifacts in MRI systems...
