The continued increase in magnetic field strength and gradient capabilities of MRI systems has allowed ever more sophisticated interrogation of brain structure and function. However, these systems are often limited to high resource imaging research centers. To extend to more general population-studies, there is need for low-cost mobile imaging systems that allow for anywhere/everywhere imaging. In this work, we built a mobile MRI lab using the 64mT Hyperfine SwoopTM system and a customized Ford Transit cargo van, and demonstrated the ability to perform routine and rapid at-home MRI for the first time.
