A compact 3T scanner was developed under a Bioengineering Research Partnership as a technology demonstrator. To assess patient acceptance on the compact 3T compared with a whole-body 3T MR, 33 consecutive patients completed a series of survey questions to report their subjective experience. The survey results demonstrate that the Compact 3T is equal or superior to a whole-body scanner for patient acceptance.
