ExamCard purpose

The purpose of this ExamCard, for Release 1.5.1, is to improve the visualization of superficial veins in MR Venography (MRV) examinations. Sequences using the Balanced technique are usually used in combination with non-intravenous contrast MRA and MRV. This enables more flexibility in setting scan parameters e.g shot interval, together with MobiFlex.
