An integrated RF/wireless coil, used to wirelessly transmit data and acquire MR images, and small ultrasound-based sensors, used to monitor physiological motion and correct MRI artifacts, were combined to enable wireless transmission of 1-MHz ultrasound data acquired from the sensors. Experiments were performed to validate that the coil could wirelessly transmit ultrasound data 1) while taking MR images and 2) from inside and outside the bore to a computer. This integrated system improves the mobility of the OCM sensors, thereby enabling them to accompany patients throughout the hospital, and demonstrates the coil’s ability to transmit high-fidelity analog data while imaging.
