Impact of using Prodiva 1.5T

According to Dr. Takahashi, Prodiva 1.5T provides high SNR and the excellent quality of fat saturation with mDIXON XD is really appreciated, especially in the neck area and joints of extremities. In this case study, mDIXON TSE provides excellent fat suppression, without the distortion that is often seen at such extremities.


Dr Takahashi says that the flexible dS MSK coil helps to make patient set-up simple. The coil is also comfortable for the hospital's large population of eldery patients. And the table height is relatively low, which helps patients with limited mobility to enter the scanner easily.
