In the context of flexible wireless coil arrays, characterization of achievable data rates is critical. This understanding will impact the types of scans whose data rates can be achieved in a wireless framework. The MR environment includes a cylindrical reflector as well as high power RF pulses, both of which may interfere with wireless communication inside the bore. By utilizing an embedded development platform, the relative impacts of the MR environment on Wi-Fi data rate were characterized and found to have little effect on the rate of data transfer.
