Initial research in the development of interventional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the late 1980s and early to mid-1990s focused on pulse sequences, devices, and clinical applications. This focus was largely a result of the limited number of areas in which the academic research community leading the development could provide innovation on the MR systems of the time. However, during the past decade, computational power, higher bandwidth graphical displays, faster computer networks, improved pulse sequence architectures, and improved technical specifications have accelerated the pace of development on modern MR systems. Today, it is the combination of multiple system factors that are enabling the future of interventional MR. These developments, their impact on the field, and newly emerging applications are described.
