Artifacts, magnetic resonance, sequences.


Magnetic resonance (MR) belongs to the most important diagnostic and imaging methods. It is derived from classic nuclear magnetic resonance that is the method based upon the difference between the magnetic properties of the diverse nuclei. However, this method, as well as the other non-invasive imaging methods, is burdened by the presence of the numerous artifacts. In addition to the artifacts due to the patient, the artifacts due to the method and the scanning sequences exist. In this review the main types of MR artifacts due to the examination method and the scanning sequences are presented. The characteristic properties and the physical and the technical preconditions of given artifacts are given.
