Remcom announces new biomedical features in XFdtd® Release 7 (XF7) for the MR community, which will be demonstrated at the ISMRM 20th Annual Meeting and Exhibition in booth #247. A new Birdcage Designer and MR Phased Array Designer are aimed at saving time for MR device design engineers by simplifying and automating various steps in the project creation process, allowing users to progress to simulation and tuning almost immediately.

XFdtd EM Simulation Software

MR Phased Array Designer

The Birdcage and MR Phased Array Designers were developed to allow MR professionals to spend more time investigating possible designs by eliminating the time required to prepare a design for simulation.

Remcom announces new biomedical features in XFdtd® Release 7 (XF7) for the MR community, which will be demonstrated at the ISMRM 20th Annual Meeting and Exhibition, May 5-11 in Melbourne, Australia. Remcom engineers will demonstrate the new Birdcage Designer and MR Phased Array Designer at Remcom’s booth (#247). In-booth appointments are being offered for those attendees that would like to meet individually with the development team to discuss the new features or work on their own projects.

The Birdcage Designer and MR Phased Array Designer, which are scheduled for release later this year, offer the following benefits:

  • Intuitive design process guides you through project creation
  • Manages circuit components automatically
  • Sets up waveforms automatically
  • Automatic grid definition
  • Ready to simulate in seconds

Jim Stack, Remcom’s training, applications, and consulting manager, said, “The Birdcage and MR Phased Array Designers were developed to allow MR professionals to spend more time investigating possible designs by eliminating the time required to prepare a design for simulation. The tools allow users to quickly configure their structures using intuitive settings. The software then automatically adds feeds, capacitors and other project settings. This permits users to move immediately into simulation and tuning. As is typical for any new feature in XF7, our goal was to shorten the time required to successfully complete a design by better reflecting a real world workflow in our process.”
