Motion capture camera for MRI scanners
With Qualisys MRI camera, capturing kinematics during functional MRI measurements have never been easier. Designed for use inside an MRI room, our MRI camera is truly a unique motion capture camera.
Custom camera housing
Although most modern MRI scanners have a very rapid drop off in magnetic field strength close to the scanner itself, materials used inside an MRI room should be non-magnetic to the greatest extent possible. Qualisys MRI compatible camera is purpose-built and differs from a regular motion capture camera through shielding and the selection of materials.
The housing is made of die-casted aluminium, steel fasteners are replaced by brass screws and the calibration L-frame and wand is made from glass fiber. The camera is completely shielded to keep electro magnetic emissions to a minimum and enabling cameras to operate just a meter away from the scanner without causing artifacts in the MRI image.

A minimal camera system of only three cameras can be sufficient to track hand and finger movements outside the scanner bore. A larger six camera system can provide the possibility to look into the bore and even track the movements of the head during a scan.
