This study examines the influence of sequence type, slice orientation and test object orientation on artifact size for medical implants. For this purpose, 79 different objects were evaluated according to ASTM F2119 and the influence of the different parameters was investigated. The evaluation shows that gradient echo sequences more often represented the worst case MR image artifact size as compared to the corresponding spin echo sequences. In addition to this result, the sagittal slice orientation, as compared to the transversal slice orientation, was shown to produce the worst case MR image artifact.
