Temperature error is correlated to signal to noise
ratio. SNR is important when performing Magnetic
Resonance guided Focused Ultrasound treatments.This
abstract investigates the differences in anatomy and
temperature images at both 1.5T and 3 T field strengths.
Two identical coils were tuned and matched to both field
strengths and the results of anatomy scans, Temperature
imaging, and SNR plot were obtained.
