MRI robots are being developed by several research groups to enable interventions in the MRI environment. A special mockup and software are developed by the task group (TG) to assess the mutual interference of medical devices and robots with medical imaging equipment, especially the MRI environment. Design and instructions for 3D printing of the TG-239 phantom and related analytic software are provided as part of a task group report, currently in preparation.

The current versions of these materials are available below.
