ExamCard description

This Ingenia 1.5T Knee full 3D protocol allows us to acquire 3D knee images of 3 different contrast types in 3 different acquisition planes. Voxels are almost isotropic resulting in excellent MPR post acquisition reconstructions.

This Release 4.1.3 ExamCard was created on Ingenia 1.5T using the 16-channel dS Knee coil.

The protocol was developed by CIMM (Dr. M.Y. Mourou and Dr. J.M. Cucchi) and
CISM  (Dr. M. Liberatore) in Monaco (MC).

ExamCard overview

 Total scan time 23:42 min.
Total scan time 23:42 min.
 
 
For using this ExamCard:
 
  • Make the correct scout view.

 

  • Plan your 3 sequences as you normally do, just take care to not cut the medial and lateral knee in sagittal acquisitions. In a large knee you may need to add some slice. 

    SAG DP 3DVISTA SPIR:   Voxel 0.52 x 0.52 x 0.4 mm    FOV 170mm    scan time 8:21 min.
    COR TSE T1 VISTA:         Voxel 0.5  x 0.5  x  0.35 mm   FOV 160mm    scan time 7:37 min.
    AX WATS 3DT1 source:    Voxel 0.5  x 0.5  x  0.4mm                            scan time 7:09 min.

  • Make all MPR reconstructions.
    After acquisition you can reconstruct in any oblique orientation you want. When voxels are isotropic, this is virtually without resolution loss.
    If you want to improve SNR of the reconstructed images, you can increase slice thickness (Thickness [mm] in Volumeview section).
    You cannot reconstruct this acquisition in simple MPR due to high number of slices.
