Summary: Metallic medical devices can concentrate RF fields and generate heat during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can lead to tissue denaturing and breakdown. Computational simulation allows medical device companies to identify designs that require experimental tests, dramatically reducing the testing required to demonstrate the MRI compatibility of their products. This presentation will discuss capabilities of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to analyze heat generation, RF fields, and heat transfer to surrounding tissue. The webinar will include a live demonstration in the software and a Q&A session.
