Quality assurance is essential both for MRI clinic and
for research. Yet, the extent to which QA is performed
varies significantly. The Norwegian Radiation Protection
Authority made recommendations in 2005 that urged all
clinics and centers using MRI to have at their disposal
a quality assurance methodology that is independent of
the MRI vendor. The MRI_QAP is an open source software
designed to address these issues, expand on the existing
procedures, remove subjective assessments and ensure
consistent reports. The software consist of various
seperated modules that perform different tasks;
Geometric distortion, Signal to noise ratio, uniformity
and dynamic stability analysis.
