The use of the Leap Motion device and software for interventional MRI guidance through integration with visualization software has been investigated. Noise effects of the device were tested in the scanner room finding negligible decrease in SNR. Usability of gestures to control an imaging plane was evaluated in software, demonstrating ease of use in navigation of planes to targets. A feasibility test in the scanner allowed gesture-based control of real-time imaging planes by the operator in the scanner room.
