Ganglion cyst

Case Study
Goumas, Chris, M.D. Palo Alto Medical Foundation • USA

Patient history

A 56-year-old female suffering from chronic wrist pain was referred to MRI.

MR examination

Ingenia 3.0T with the dS Wrist 8ch coil was used for this examination.

The patient was positioned feet first, supine, with wrist supported in the inside the wrist coil. Additional pads were placed in the wrist coil to minimize any motion. Another pad was placed under the patient’s elbow and arm to align the arm into the wrist coil.

Phase oversampling or REST slabs were used to minimize scan times allowing more time to sample signal. SENSE was used judiciously to help keep scan times within about five minutes.

Diagnosis

Ganglion cyst.

Impact of using Ingenia 3.0T

Ingenia has outstanding homogeneity and the fat saturation is very robust. When we’re doing a wrist, we always do it at the patient’s side, with perfect fat saturation.
