Busch, Hans-Peter, M.D. Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Brüder • Germany

Ingenia 3.0T was used with integrated Posterior coil.
A high-resolution 3-station exam was done within 18 minutes.

Diagnosis

A vertebral fracture is seen in L2.

Clinical impact of using Ingenia 3.0T

Ingenia provides the largest homogenous FOV for a 70 cm system. With the large FOV we can do total spine imaging in two stations, but we only use this for restless patients. For routine exams we use three stations and a longer scan time for exceptional image quality.
