ExamCard description

The protocols in this ExamCard are suggestions for routine brain imaging on the Panorama 1.0T open MRI system. Site radiologists should be consulted for actual protocols that are needed for diagnosis.

 

The 4-channel ST SENSE Head coil is used.

CLEAR is applied to provide homogeneous signal intensity across the field of view.

In the T2 protocols DRIVE is used to decrease TR and scan times, while maintaining proper contrast.

Patient preparation

All clothing and jewelry is removed and the patient is dressed in a loose cotton gown. Ask patients to remove makeup to reduce possible artifacts from mascara, etc.

 

Give the patient proper hearing protection and position the patient in the 4-channel ST SENSE Head coil and center to iso-center.

Contrast agent / injection protocol

Contrast is given if dictated by the radiologists and in a dose that is in line with the contrast agent manufacturers recommendations.
