Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging relies on weak blood oxygen level dependent signal variations. Therefore, it is extremely sensitive to MR scanner instabilities. A regular assessment of the device was shown to help preserving a good quality of fMRI data. It is also a powerful tool to compare systems. Here, we integrated a Quality Assessment based on fBIRN recommendations that can be automatically launched and reconstructed online to be able to immediately monitor system performances. We report cases where abnormal situations leading to suboptimal fMRI data were revealed which would have been missed if only relying on the manufacturer’s test service.
