Low field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners provide a unique low-cost alternative to conventional MRI scanners. Nevertheless, low-field scanners come with drawbacks such as reduced signal-to-noise ratio and resolution, and also distorted images caused by magnetic field inhomogeneity and non-linear gradient fields. Despite this, it still...

MRI has been used worldwide as an imaging modality for decades due to its ability to distinguish between soft tissues. However, MRIs cannot be used in all situations due to their extensive hard- and software. For this reason, research in the field of low-field MRI has been conducted. Low-field MRI systems do not use superconducting magnets but...

This research addresses the following question: Is it possible to detect vascular obstructions and oedemas or monitor the decellularization process in perfused ex-vivo porcine kidneys using electrical impedance spectroscopy? Patients on the waiting list for kidney transplantation die because of a kidney shortage. A part of this problem can be...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive, non-ionizing imaging modality that is commonly used in the clinic today. However, it is an expensive technique. The high purchase, operational and maintenance costs, as well as the need for trained staff with technical expertise, put this technique out of reach for a large part of the world...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are a crucial diagnostic tool for radiologists. They are able to render two­ and three­dimensional images of the body without exposure to harmful radiation. MRI systems are, however, costly to build and maintain. This adversely impacts access to these scanners in developing regions. In an effort to...

MRI is an non-invasive imaging technique used by many physicians to diagnose and treat diseases. The technique however is still very expensive and thus out of reach for developing countries. This has led to the goal to design a low-cost MRI system. The challenges that arise from this system make it necessary to design coils in a different way...

The aim of this research is to build a machine learning model in order to predict the success of invasive surgical treatment on a degenerated cervical spine, based on the baseline X-ray images. The purpose of the results of this research is an application in computer-aided diagnostics and treatment planning in the field of neurosurgery. Spinal...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a popular modality for brain imaging in present times. The quality of the images depends on the strength of the magnetic field. An MRI scanner with a magnetic field strength of 3 Tesla(T) is pre-dominantly used for clinical purposes. However, with the advancement in technology, and the need to image finer image...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a painless procedure to produce high-resolution diagnostic images. Today, it is one of the essential clinical imaging modalities. One of the major challenges involved with this imaging modality is its long scanning time. Parallel imaging in combination with compressed sensing has overcome this challenge to a great...

Breast cancer, as one of the main causes of cancer death in the world, requires early detection to increase rate of survival. One idea is to develop a device that women could use at home to perform a regular self-check. Ultrasound is a safe, radiation-free technology that could be used for this device. Ultrasound systems (B-mode) that are...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the most widely used imaging modalities nowadays and it performs especially well imaging human organs such as the brain and liver. One of its main limitations is the relatively long imaging times, to overcome this issue and speed up the data acquisition, several techniques such as Parallel Imaging or PI have...

Low-field Magnetic Resonance Imaging (LF MRI) is a cheap and safe technique to visualise the internal structure of the human body. Unlike other imaging techniques, Magnetic Resonance Imaging does not use ionising radiation to generate the images. Instead, it uses magnetic fields and radio waves which are nonthreatening to the health. The LF MRI...

Percutaneous coronary intervention is a minimally-invasive procedure to treat coronary artery disease. In such procedures, X-ray angiography, a real-time imaging technique, is commonly used for image guidance to identify lesion sites and navigate catheters and guide-wires within coronary arteries. Due to the physical nature of X-ray imaging,...

Ablation is a medical procedure to treat liver cancer where a needle-like catheter has to be inserted into a tumor, which will then be heated or frozen to destroy the tumor tissue. To guide the catheter, Ultrasound(US) imaging is used which shows the catheter position in real time. However, some tumors are not visible on US images. To make these...

Commissioned by Ampelmann Operations B.V., a testing system for Motion Reference Units has been developed. This testing system provides a platform to compare different motion reference units to be able to verify their capabilities. The design of this system includes validation of a mechanical setup, as well as the development of an electrical...

In order to make offshore working conditions safer, Ampelmann B.V. builds platforms that stay stable by compensating for a ship’s motion. These platforms are controlled via motion reference units (MRUs). In order to test the performances of these MRUs, a linear motion MRU test setup was developed. The system was divided into three parts:...

The Motion Reference Unit (MRU) is an important component in the Ampelmann Operation B.V. systems. In order to assess the performance of different MRUs a test system is developed. By using a one Degree of Freedom rail, wave motions can be simulated in the sway, surge and heave direction of a ship. The test system is divided in three parts:...

Electrical properties tomography is the quantification of the conductivity and permittivity of different materials. In an MRI setting this can be used to map the electrical properties of tissue. These values can be used as a different contrast mechanism, for hyperthermia treatment or the improvement of antenna design for specific applications....

The quality of magnetic resonance images produced by conventional MRI scanners is guaranteed by the strength and homogeneity of the magnetic field. However, the superconducting magnets required to produce such a field make MRI scanners large and expensive and hence inaccessible to a large number of people in developing countries. Our partners...
