Paper Title:
Development of an MR-Compatible ECG Amplifier
  Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to develop a magnetic resonance (MR)-compatible electrocardiogram (ECG) amplifier. If ECG signals are measured simultaneously with the acquisition of MR images, there can be a mutual interference effect. The present system was designed to block noises caused by the main magnetic field, gradient magnetic field and radiofrequency (RF) pulse when MR images are acquired. It uses analogue elements in order to remove any possible effect on MR images. In addition, a radio-frequency-interference (RFI)-free optical data link using the pulse-width modulation (PWM) technique is adopted in order to transmit ECG signals measured inside the MR room.
