Ferrofluid in mri

  1. so it seems ferrofluids might be used for mri scanners as contrast agents. Wouldn't the ferrofluid get hot?

    The strong field is static, I don't know the power of the weaker fields. In addition, if they are in good thermal contact to the environment the heat gets distributed quickly. I would not expect problems from heat.
  4. Thanks!
