We evaluated compatibility of a 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) video camera with a 0.55T MRI system. Initial tests showed severe MR image artifacts when the ToF camera was operating, and USB communication with a computer outside the MR suite was interrupted during MR image acquisition. With adequate conductive shielding of the ToF camera and typical MR imaging bandwidths, MR images could be acquired with no measurable effects from the ToF camera, and with no effects of the MRI system on ToF signal acquisition.
