More information in less time

The Ingenia 1.5T scanner with the dStream architecture allowed to speed up the whole body DWI sequence. A dS SENSE acceleration factor of 5 helped to obtain more clinical information while decreasing exam time by 15 minutes.

Increased referrals

Dr. Nobusawa and Mr. Naka describe how their radiologists confidently use the whole body protocol, and how referrals have increased, and replaced some nuclear medicine exams, particularly for follow-up in oncology patients.
