Imaging tuberculous spondylitis on Ingenia 3.0T

Case Study
Casselman, Jan, M.D., Ph.D. AZ St-Jan AV Brugge • Belgium

Patient history

Patient with tuberculous spondylitis.

MR examination

The patient underwent an MRI examination on Ingenia 3.0T using the dS HeadNeckSpine coil.
The examination was done at AZ St.-Jan in Bruges, Belgium.

Images and findings

T2W T1W
T2W
T1W
Two-stage spinal T2W and T1W image with fat suppression in a patient with tuberculous spondylitis demonstrate involvement and collapse of vertebra Th11 and Th12. Enhancing subcutaneous soft tissues are seen at the level of the spondylitis.

Clinical impact of using Ingenia 3.0T with dStream

Note the homogeneous signal intensity throughout the images without any signal drop at the upper or lower end of the images and at the interface between the upper and lower image. Also notice that this could be achieved without the use of anterior saturation slabs and that the fat saturation remains perfect throughout the image.

The Ingenia 3.0T system and its high SNR allow high spatial and contrast resolution imaging (thin slices) in a short time.
