Interventional magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) is different from diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in its spatial, temporal, and contrast resolution requirements due to its specific clinical applications. As a result, the pulse sequences used in iMRI often are significantly different than those used in the more conventional diagnostic arena. The focus of this article is to summarize how iMRI is different from diagnostic MRI, to describe a variety of MRI pulse sequences and sequence strategies that have evolved because of these differences, and to describe some MRI sequence strategies that are in development and may be seen in future iMRI applications.
