These coils are the main source of noise within the MRI system. Radiofrequency receiver coils are used to receive magnetic signals from the region of interest within the body. Head and body coils both stimulate the imaged volume by transmitting radiofrequency waves and receive signals from it, while other coils are limited to receiving signals following stimulation by the body coil. These coils have limited coverage but a very high resolution and higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). In order to achieve high resolution without compromising the coverage, phased-array coils have been developed.

Slow scanning systems with alternating, contrarotating movements are therefore being replaced by continuously rotating systems with faster scanning times. The attenuation values for each set of projections are registered in the computer, and the CT image is reconstructed by means of a complex computational process. The finite number of attenuation values corresponding to the scanned object is organized in matrix form. The translation of these numbers into various analogous gray levels creates a visual image of the scanned cross-sectional area.
