ExamCard purpose:

 

This ExamCard provides a sagittal T2-weighted and T1-weighted TSE sequence for the total spine and the head within 20 minutes.

 

The SENSE Flex-L coil is used for imaging of the head and the Synergy Spine coil for imaging of the spine.

 

Workflow is optimized for patient comfort. Table movements are minimized to one table stroke from head to lumbar spine for the surveys and a second table stroke from lumbar to head for the diagnostic sequences.

 

Planning is simplified by utilizing fused survey images and scan alignment for all diagnostic sequences.

 

ExamCard workflow:

 

  • Position the patient on the Synergy Spine coil.
  • Position the SENSE Flex-L coil on both sides of the patient's head (outside the headset) and fix with a strap. See photo below.
  • Center on the patient's head (eyebrow level).
  • Start the ExamCard.
  • When all surveys are finished, load them into the MobiView package. Click |smooth fuse| and save the images to the database.
  • Load the fused surveys into the planning environment.
  • Open the first sequence (T2w_TSE of the lumbar spine). Due to using the same geoname, using GeoLink and enabling ScanAlign, all sequences and all stations are now opened and can be planned at once.
  • Manually adjust the FH off centers of the refscans to match the FH off centers of the corresponding stations.
  • Start scan.
  • Images can easily be viewed, (smooth) fused and saved in MobiView.
