Power consumption reduction is key when exploring wireless MRI arrays. An alternative low-power (5.7mW) SiGe pre-amplifier is presented and its impact on imaging performance evaluated in a benchtop setting. The reduction in power results in a more extreme non-linearity that introduces distortion into the images. It is possible to calibrate and compensate for this distortion through receive-only methods. Applying this compensation to the distorted images results in a restoration of image quality with resulting RMSE comparable to industry standard amplifiers representing a potential power reduction up to 30x.
