The thermal performance of MRI hardware is critical to
the safe and efficient operation of these devices.
Placement of cooling pipes can help to transport heat
away from the system. Placing this pipes algorithmically
can lead to an efficient cooling system based on thermal
simulation and path finding algoithms.
