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.
