Design of a Thin and Stretchable Metamaterial Cap to Enhance MRI Image Quality
The research team is investigating the efficacy and accuracy of the application of an artificially made, stretchable metamaterial designed with specific electromagnetic properties. The conductive metamaterial is designed to be worn by a patient inside a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine. Its performance will be measured by its ability to increase the magnetic field intensity and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of an MRI scan, indicated by higher contrast images. The imaging results will be compared to traditional MR images. This research will provide insight into creating safer, higher-quality MR images, thus supplying healthcare professionals with access to higher detailed anatomical information for better medical care.
