Ingenia 1.5T breast exam with SmartBreast and dS Breast 7ch coil

Case Study
Veldhuis, Wouter, M.D., Ph.D. UMC Utrecht • Netherlands

MR examination

This patient underwent a breast MRI exam on Ingenia 1.5T at University Medical Center Utrecht.
SmartBreast and the dS Breast 7ch coil were used.

Dynamic eTHRIVE shows homogeneous fat suppression due to use of SmartBreast.
The six 60 second dynamics demonstrate the lesion contrast enhancement characteristics.
The isotropic 3D acquisition allows multi planar reconstructions.

The T1 Perfusion package on IntelliSpace Portal automatically generates color maps, which can be overlaid on high resolution anatomical acquisitions. It allows easy analysis of Regions of Interest (ROIs) by providing kinetic curve information and parameter values. ROIs can be drawn on color maps, dynamic scans or any other acquired images, allowing easy placement.

This high resolution eTHRIVE image in delayed phase shows high in-plane resolution. Homogenous fat suppression is seen.

Impact of using Ingenia

 

  • The dS Breast 7ch coil provides excellent imaging performance and use for biopsy procedures.
  • SmartBreast helps to obtain consistent fat suppression due to patient-adaptive shimming method.
  • Fully automated stack positioning enhances workflow.
  • The 70 cm bore is designed for patient comfort.
