Steadfast progress has been made from biopsy to surgery with interventional MRI (iMRI). Such image-guided interventions require specialized instrumentation due to the unusual elements of the MR environment. Suppliers/manufacturers of MR-compatible instrumentation were few in 1994, but now there are more than 50. We present fundamental issues of MR compatibility and a list of known suppliers/manufacturers.
