Software, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanning, Full-Body
Definition : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) software designed to operate whole (i.e., full) body scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended tow 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. Whole body 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 whole body MRI scanning system software is also available for open MRI systems.
