3 The MRI Scanner We can divide the components of an MRI scanner into four categories. The magnet, the magnetic field gradients, the RF Transmit/ Receive hardware, and the data acquisition electronics. 1 The Magnet We will begin by considering the magnet.  9, are large solenoid coils made of superconducting metal (niobium alloys, typically). 2 The magnet is “ramped up” to field by introducing a current through a pair of leads that produces the desired magnetic field. Once the specified current has been built up, the circuit is closed such that the current “re-circulates” through the coil constantly and there is no need to supply more power to it.

The thick vertical lines denote the location of the coil’s windings. The thinner line denotes the operating region where the sample is placed. Ideally, this region should have a flat magnetic field, and additional fields (shims) are necessary 34 Luis Hernandez-Garcia et al. Fig. 4 The streaks in the image are caused by the presence of electromagnetic frequency noise at a single frequency. This is typically introduced by the presence of badly shielded electronic equipment in the room. The AC power supply running at 60 Hz to the device is in this case the culprit of the artifact sufficient to let RF noise into the room that ruins images, so testing of the room shielding must be stressed.
