Compressed SENSE can accelerate most MRI sequences without sacrificing image quality, which allowed KOYASU Neurosurgical Clinic (KNC) to shorten its MRI time slots. As a result, KNC increased the throughput of their MRI scanner with an average of three additional patients per day.

Faster MRI exams

Most exams now only take 15 minutes including patient positioning time, versus 20 minutes before using Compressed SENSE. KNC saw the average number of patients per day increase from under 27 to over 30, so 14% more.

More flexibility, less stress

KNC was used to a fully booked MRI schedule and scanning until after regular hours. With less pressure on the schedule since introducing Compressed SENSE, the MRI staff feels less stressed and can quite smoothly insert an urgent patient when needed. Shorter exams also reduce time a patient has to lie still.
