In this project, a method to quantify the gradient-induced vibration of a medical device in an MR system using a laser Doppler vibrometer is presented. A copper annulus was suspended in a 3T scanner, at a position chosen to maximize the x-component of the x-gradient. The displacement of the device was measured at different gradient field strengths. Typical observations were understood, which should lead towards helping establish a test standard for gradient induced vibrations of implanted medical devices.
