acouStIc metamateriaL for MRI noisE caNCEllation

Project description

Silencing MRI scanning

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used imaging technology that combines a magnetic field with radio waves to produce anatomical pictures of the body. However, the acoustic noise during MRI causes patient discomfort, communication problems and prohibits efficient patient sedation. SILENCE, an EU-funded project, aims to reduce this acoustic noise of MRI through acoustic shielding. The team will perform market analysis for launching their metamaterial-based technology. Long-term, the aim is to generate a disruptive device that can be implemented in research centres, hospitals and manufacturers to improve the comfort of MRI scanning.
