ExamCard purpose

This release 2.6.3 ExamCard was optimized for rapid scanning at one minute or less protocol times, and may be used to minimize patient motion on claustrophobic patients, or to increase throughput in a busy institution.

 

Each protocol is also optimized with the resolution meeting or exceeding the standard resolution of 1.5T protocols (256x196 matrixes). For optimal protocol performance, this ExamCard should be used with the 8-channel SENSE Wrist coil.
