Quality assurance is essential both for MRI clinic and for research. Yet, the extent to which QA is performed varies significantly. The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority made recommendations in 2005 that urged all clinics and centers using MRI to have at their disposal a quality assurance methodology that is independent of the MRI vendor. The MRI_QAP is an open source software designed to address these issues, expand on the existing procedures, remove subjective assessments and ensure consistent reports. The software consist of various seperated modules that perform different tasks; Geometric distortion, Signal to noise ratio, uniformity and dynamic stability analysis.
