ExamCard overview

 

The axial mFFE sequence with a small FOV and thin slices covers three levels of the cervical spine. It is a multi-echo fast field echo (FFE) sequence with five echoes. The summated image shows beautiful contrast between gray and white matter in the cord (butterfly).

 

The new multislice approach gives more consistent image quality.

Summation of the five echoes is integrated in the ExamCard for easy workflow. Summated images will be calculated automatically.
