UVM brain MRI protocols upgraded with SWIp, MultiVane XD and pCASL

Best Practice
Nickerson, Joshua, M.D. University of Vermont Medical Center • USA
Watts, Richard, Ph.D. University of Vermont College of Medicine • USA

After a comparison study, the MRI staff at University of Vermont (UVM) Medical Center has incorporated SWIp susceptibility weighted imaging, MultiVane XD motion reduction and pCASL perfusion imaging into their brain protocols.

SWIp in patients with hypertension, amyloid angiopathy, trauma

Dr. Nickerson says, “With SWIp we are basically looking for blood byproducts. It is a sensitive method for visualizing small lesions containing deoxygenated blood. In our comparison, SWIp images are vastly better than gradient echo imaging, there’s no question of that anymore”

Motion-free imaging of white matter changes with MultiVane XD

According to Dr. Nickerson, MultiVane XD is especially useful when imaging patients with diseases that cause white matter changes on T2-weighted images, such as MS, small vessel disease, vasculitis and sarcoidosis. The team saw MultiVane XD provide remarkable improvement, not only for artifacts caused by patient motion, but also for the extent of pulsation artifacts in the basal cisterns.
