    Correct Answer
    A. Diamagnetic
    Explanation
    Diamagnetic substances are those that exhibit a very slight negative or repelling effect when placed in an externally applied magnetic field. They have low and negative susceptibility, meaning they are weakly repelled by magnetic fields. This is in contrast to paramagnetic substances, which are weakly attracted to magnetic fields, and ferromagnetic substances, which are strongly attracted to magnetic fields. Superparamagnetic substances, on the other hand, exhibit a unique behavior where they switch between being paramagnetic and diamagnetic depending on the size and strength of the applied magnetic field.

    Explanation
    The frequency encoding gradient is responsible for determining the spatial location of the signal within the image. It is applied during the data acquisition process and helps in encoding the frequency information of the MR signal. The receiver bandwidth refers to the range of frequencies that are sampled during this process. By adjusting the receiver bandwidth, different frequency components can be captured, allowing for the acquisition of specific frequency information and improving the image quality.

    • A.

      Phase steps in the martrix

    • B.

      Frequency samples in the matrix

    Correct Answer
    B. Frequency samples in the matrix
    Explanation
    The receiver bandwidth is determined by the number of frequency samples in the matrix. This means that the more frequency samples there are in the matrix, the wider the receiver bandwidth will be. This is because each frequency sample represents a specific frequency range that the receiver can detect. Therefore, having more frequency samples allows the receiver to detect a wider range of frequencies, resulting in a larger bandwidth. Conversely, having fewer frequency samples would result in a narrower bandwidth.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    If 256 frequency samples are collected and the readout or sampling period is 8 ms, the receiver bandwidth would be

    Correct Answer
    16 Khz
    Explanation
    The receiver bandwidth is determined by the number of frequency samples collected and the sampling period. In this case, since 256 frequency samples are collected and the sampling period is 8 ms, we can calculate the receiver bandwidth by dividing the number of samples by the sampling period. Therefore, 256 samples divided by 8 ms equals 32 kHz. However, since the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem states that the maximum frequency that can be accurately represented is half the sampling rate, the receiver bandwidth would be half of 32 kHz, which is 16 kHz.

    SLICE THICKNESS IS DETERMINED BY THESE 2 THINGS

    Correct Answer
    AMPLITUDE OF THE GRADIENT BANDWIDTH OF THE RF PULSE
    Explanation
    The slice thickness in imaging is determined by the amplitude of the gradient and the bandwidth of the RF pulse. The gradient is used to spatially encode the signal, and the amplitude of the gradient determines the range of spatial encoding. A higher amplitude gradient will result in a thicker slice. The RF pulse is used to excite the spins in the desired slice, and the bandwidth of the RF pulse determines the range of frequencies excited. A wider bandwidth will result in a thicker slice. Therefore, both the amplitude of the gradient and the bandwidth of the RF pulse play a role in determining the slice thickness.

    IF A THICKER SLICE IS DESIRED

    • A.

      A LOWER AMPLITUDE OF THE Y GRADIENT IS SELECTED

    • B.

      A HIGHER AMPLITUDE OF THE Z GRADIENT IS SELECTED

    • C.

      A HIGHER AMPLITUDE OF THE X GRADIENT IS SELECTED

    • D.

      A LOWER AMPLITUDE OF THE Z GRADIENT IS SELECTED

    Correct Answer
    D. A LOWER AMPLITUDE OF THE Z GRADIENT IS SELECTED
    Explanation
    To obtain a thicker slice, a lower amplitude of the Z gradient is selected. The Z gradient is responsible for the slice thickness in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). By reducing the amplitude of the Z gradient, the magnetic field variation in the Z direction is decreased, resulting in a thicker slice being excited and detected during the imaging process.

    THE ONLY WAY THE SPATIAL RESOLUTION CAN INCREASED IS TO

    • A.

      INCREASE THE FOV

    • B.

      DECREASE THE PHASE ENCODINGS OF THE MATRIX

    • C.

      INCREASE THE VOXEL VOLUME

    • D.

      REDUCE THE VOXEL VOLUME

    Correct Answer
    D. REDUCE THE VOXEL VOLUME
    Explanation
    Reducing the voxel volume is the only way to increase the spatial resolution. Spatial resolution refers to the ability to distinguish between two separate points in an image. By reducing the voxel volume, the size of each voxel decreases, allowing for more voxels to be present in the same field of view. This increase in the number of voxels leads to a higher level of detail and improved spatial resolution in the resulting image. Increasing the field of view (FOV) would have the opposite effect, as it would spread the same amount of information over a larger area, resulting in a decrease in spatial resolution. Decreasing the phase encodings or increasing the voxel volume would not directly impact spatial resolution.

    RF SHIELDING IS KNOWN AS A

    Correct Answer
    FARADAY CAGE
    Explanation
    A Faraday cage is a type of enclosure made of conductive material that blocks electromagnetic fields. It is used to protect sensitive electronic equipment from interference and to prevent electromagnetic radiation from escaping. RF shielding refers to the practice of using materials or structures to block or reduce radio frequency signals. Therefore, RF shielding is known as a Faraday cage because it effectively blocks RF signals and provides electromagnetic shielding.
