ExamCard purpose

This ExamCard is for a lumbar examination in large patients (>130 kg/285 lbs), scanned with Body/Spine XL coil.  Imaging times are about 5 minutes with phase foldover suppression.

 

If the patient fully fills the whole Body/Spine XL coil, phase foldover suppression is needed.

If the patient is smaller than the coil width, you can reduce foldover suppression.

If the patient is large enough that he/she does not fit properly inside the coil and into the magnet isocenter, then use offcenter options (T1w TSE, T2w TSE, PDw STIR) in the transverse plane.

 

Spectral fatsat is very demanding with this kind of patient, so in this ExamCard T2w TSE STIR is used.
