242 – Recording ECG Data in an fMRI

This application note is concerned with the recording of real-time ECG during a fMRI investigation.

ECG during fMRI using BIOPAC

The following BIOPAC products were used for this measurement:

  • MP150WSW data acquisition system with AcqKnowledge®
  • MECMRI-BIOP cable/filter set
    • ECG100C electrocardiogram amplifier module
    • LEAD108B or C electrode leads (15 cm or 30 cm)
    • EL508 radiotranslucent electrodes

Associated Applications

  • ECG: Cardiology - Connect up to 16 ECG input leads with MP160 system. Use automated analysis features for HRV, RSA, to classify heartbeats, identify arrhythmias, and perform ECG averaging.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging with BIOPAC Equipment - Electrodes, electrode leads, transducers, and stimulus options for safe data acquisition in the MRI. Record biopotentials, temperature, respiration, EDA, dynamometry, blood pressure, etc.
