Resolution achieved by ultra-high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows precise anatomical and functional imaging studies. However, it relies on patients tolerating scans with lengthy acquisition time in a long narrow bore. General anaesthesia is routinely provided in MRI scanners operating at magnetic fields up to 3 Tesla with dedicated MR conditional equipment, however, this has not previously been tested in 7-Tesla (7T) MRI scanner environments. We investigated the reliability of an MR Conditional Fabius MRI Dräger anaesthetic machine (Dräger, Lübeck, Germany) and Philips Invivo MR400 monitoring system (Philips, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) around a 7T Siemens Magnetom Terra scanner (Siemens AG, Munich, Germany), as part of our safety and efficacy evaluation of anaesthesia delivery around a 7T MRI scanner.
