Consumer electronics technology has advanced to create devices that are less sensitive to the harsh conditions of a magnet room. We integrated mobile architecture into our interventional procedures to facilitate imaging setup and in-room MRI scanning. A single SSID, dual antenna WiFi network was set up inside both the magnet room and control room to allow for device connectivity regardless of location. Applications for MRI control, physiology monitoring, and HIFU transducer placement were created and demonstrated on a tablet and a mobile phone. These applications allow easier monitoring and control by providing interfaces directly to the magnet-room user.
