ExamCard description

This ExamCard was created for female pelvis imaging on a Release 5.1.7 Multiva 1.5T system.

It makes use of small field of views pre- and post-contrast injection.  The orientations, sagittal, transverse and coronal have all been included. Multislice scans of different weightings, T1W and T2W, are scanned without and with fat saturation techniques such as STIR, SPIR, and SPAIR. In addition, mDIXON is used after contrast administration. SmartLine postprocessing steps such as PicturePlus and VolumeView have been added to the different scans.

Patient positioning / coil use

The patient is positioned head first, supine on the TotalSpine-16 coil. The Torso-16 is positioned on the lower abdomen/pelvis for increased SNR and AP coverage.

Contrast agent / injection protocol

Refer to the contrast agent manufacturer for information on use of the contrast agent.

Postprocessing

SmartLine postprocessing steps, PicturePlus, have been added to all multislice scans to enhance the images. For the mDIXON scans, VolumeView SmartLine steps were added to create multiplanar reformats (MPRs) in different orientations from the 3D data sets.
