Title (EN) OPTICAL INTERFACE FOR LOCAL MRI COILS
(FR) INTERFACE OPTIQUE POUR BOBINES D'IRM LOCALES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An implementation of an optical transmission path for NMR signals from local coils (34) in magnetic resonance imaging employs a photomodulator (49, 46) that may be incorporated into a connecting optical cable (28) to be shared among multiple local coils and provide for connection and disconnection at an electrical interface eliminating the need for optical connectors.
(FR)La présente invention concerne la mise en œuvre d'une voie de transmission optique pour des signaux RMN provenant de bobines locales (34) dans l'imagerie par résonance magnétique qui fait usage d'un photomodulateur (49, 46) qui peut être incorporé dans un câble optique de connexion (28) à partager entre de multiples bobines locales et pour pourvoir à la connexion et déconnexion au niveau d'une interface électrique en éliminant le besoin de connecteurs optiques.
