We aim to demonstrate methods to wirelessly probe the MRI
transmit state without access to the internal MRI hardware itself. We
demonstrate two forms of RF pulse detection during a scan with simple magnetic
field probes: 1) an electrical link undergoing peak detection and 2) an optical
link. We process this signal as an external hardware interrupt into a microcontroller,
which can be easily used to bias a coil between receive and transmit mode. Such
a setup can be useful in future wireless receive coils.
