The purpose of this project is to streamline the workflow for robotic-assisted MR-guided arthrography by integrating a single loop coil in the base / mounting adapter of the robot. This coil provides sufficient spatial coverage and sensitivity to localize anatomic points of interest and registration fiducials embedded in the robot. Integration of the coil with the robot places the imaging coil as close as possible to the patient and reduces the number of devices that need to be managed during an interventional procedure. Quantitative results for SNR and an end-to-end targeting study using a phantom are reported in the abstract.
