The purpose of the study is to evaluate the suitability
of a novel RFID-based tracking system for intraoperative
MRI. Therefore the spatial accuracy and SNR according to
the NEMA standard MS 1-2008 was quantified. The
installation of an RFID system including transponders
and receivers in the magnet room in close distance to
the magnet has low of non-relevant influence on MRI.
However the spatial accuracy have to be improved for an
application as tracking system in intraoperative MRI.
