A 12-lead MR compatible ECG system

A 12-lead MR compatible ECG system has been developed and tested by the joint force of IADI, CIC-IT and Schiller Medical, France. This breakthrough allows the reconstruction of a high-quality 12-lead ECG under MR environment. The system has been tested on 1.5T and 3T MR machine. It might help improve patient monitoring and triggering, as well as be of interest for interventional MRI and other advanced cardiac applications.
