PNS has become the main limitation of fast MRI using current gradient hardware. We recently presented a novel pipeline to simulate magnetically induced PNS thresholds in arbitrary coil geometries. Now, we use this framework and detailed modeling of ion dynamics and Action Potential (AP) generation to test a new strategy for PNS reduction. The method (which we call “PRE-TAPS”) pre-saturates the nerve membrane by playing gradient pulses prior to the main imaging gradient. Our model suggests that this simple pulse-sequence modification could effectively increase PNS thresholds by up to 30%.
