The RIDER Phantom MRI data set contains repeat phantom studies. The phantom used for all data acquisitions was a version of the EuroSpin II Test Object 5 as distributed by Diagnostic Sonar, Ltd (Livingston, West Lothian, Scotland). The phantom was comprised of 18 25-mm doped gel filled tubes and 1 20-mm tube containing 0.25 mM GdDTPA.

Scanners evaluated:

  • Scanner A – 1.5T GE 8-channel HD with BRM gradient subsystem (33 mT/m amplitude; 120 T/m-s)
  • Scanner B – 1.5T GE 8-channel HD with CRM gradient subsystem (50 mT/m amplitude; 150 T/m-s)
  • Scanner C – 1.5T Siemens Espree (VB13) with 33 mT/m amplitude, 100 T/m-s gradient subsystem
  • Scanner D – 3.0T GE 8-channel HD with TwinSpeed gradients (40 mT/m; 150 T/m-s in zoom mode) For all measurements, an 8-channel phased array head coil was used.
