The mid-field system studied here demonstrates reduced maximum 10-g SAR when performing RF excitation around resonant lead lengths as well as a total reduction in SAR consistent with SAR α Bo2. In comparison to 1.5 T and 3 T clinical scanners, mid-field scanners provide unique opportunities to obtain diagnostically relevant information with a commensurate increase in safety for patients with implanted devices.
