Abstract

Here, a report on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) using a 125.3 MHz high-temperature superconducting (HTS) surface resonator for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is presented. A 40 mm in diameter Bi2Sr 2Ca2Cu3Ox (Bi-2223) tape surface resonator was built. Using a HTS surface resonator at 77 K than a similar copper surface resonator at 300 K, the capacity to save the accuracy of DTI in a reduced scan time (11 min) was demonstrated. The standard deviation of deviation angles of DTI fiber tracking was also improved by 2.5 gains. The use of HTS surface resonator may improve the reliability of fiber tracking experiments.
