Data quality is a top priority at The Dartmouth Brain Imaging Center. In the DBIC, investigators regularly run ultra-high, fast scanning techniques (e.g. echo planer imaging) in the BOLD and DTI sequences As such, monitoring the stability of a scanner is essential., Our system is monitored on a weekly basis. We use a vigorous QA protocol, similar to fBIRN, which measures SNR, SFNR (tSNR), and other useful quantities. We also implement the Siemens customer QA tools, which can be used to test health of the body coil and the head coils.
