ExamCard purpose

These release 2.6 Examcards are optimized for diagnostic breast imaging with the MammoTrak breast coils.

 

The ExamCards contain an axial T2w VISTA and axial dynamic eTHRIVE sequence. Both scans have equal and high in-plane resolution combined with equal and thin slices.

 

Automated post-processing is integrated in the ExamCard for the dynamic eTHRIVE sequence.

 

The 'CK DYNAMIC' protocol is used to check the quality of the fat suppression in the eTHRIVE sequence.

 

The 'Prep Only' sequence only performs preparation steps and is used to manually check the center frequency (F0).

 

A step-by-step workflow description of this ExamCard can be downloaded below.

The gadolinium injecton is started at the same time as the (manual start of the) second dynamic scan.
