Purpose of this work was to develop a fully digital mobile MRI system with state of the art broadband high speed electronics. The system is battery driven and can run virtually any user defined pulse sequence as well as standard methods. Furthermore the same system can also be used to upgrade older stationary MR scanners to fully digital driven imaging systems.
