Low-field permanent magnet MR systems will be increasingly utilized in resource-limited settings due to their independence from helium and power supply infrastructure. Optimization of available systems for clinical imaging will greatly improve diagnostics and lead to unique opportunities to study health concerns in developing countries. This exhibit summarizes the state-of-the art in permanent magnet MRI to encourage interest in the improvement of existing systems and their utilization for collaborative imaging research in the developing world.
