Multiple lymphoma bone lesions on the ribs, in the upper arms, pelvis and proximal femur (arrow) are clearly visible on whole body STIR, T1 and DWIBS (3D-MIP reconstruction).

Diagnosis

Multiple non-Hodgkin's lymphoma bone lesions are clearly visualized.

Clinical impact of the Achieva 3.0T TX with MultiTransmit:

Using just the single Integrated Body coil in combination with MultiTransmit, we can perform not only whole body STIR sequences, but also whole body T1 and whole body DWI sequences in the same examination. The combination of these three sequences gives excellent information for staging of suspicious lesions.
