MRI system with open access to patient image volume

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #4829252.

An MRI system using a pair of opposed magnetic poles to create the requisite static magnetic field H.sub.o is configured so as to provide open and unobstructed patient access areas communicating directly with an MRI imaging volume along directions which are perpendicular to the patient transport axis. In this manner, operator/doctor access to the patient is maximized while potential claustrophobic reactions from the patient are minimized.
