Quality control devices and methods for magnetic resonance imaging systems

The invention relates to quality control devices and methods for magnetic resonancernimaging (MRI) systems, more particularly for medical imaging applications. An example isrnstereotactic surgery where MRI images are combined with X-ray images to accuratelyrnlocate a target in a subject.rnA test device (1), and an associated method using said test object, are used torneasily detect a faulty calibration or a malfunction of an MRI device.rnThe test device includes:rna hermetically sealable hollow body (20) having a substantially cylindrical shape,rna support frame (22) configured to be removably inserted in the hollow body andrndefining a target region (V22) having a substantially cylindrical shape; andrna plurality of target objects (24) made of a material visible on X-ray images and MRIrnimages said target objects being arranged in the target region and being attached to thernsupport frame.
