Software, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of MRI systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the scanning procedure and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. MRI scanning system software is usually not available separate from the MRI system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated MRI scanning system software is available for a variety of different applications, such as whole body, extremity, mammography, neurosurgery, and endoscopy procedures.
