This release 2.5.3 Achieva 3.0T ExamCard has been created by the Symbion Research Clinical Center (Prince of Wales Research Imaging Center) in Randwick, Sydney, Australia. It provides protocols for imaging the prostate gland.

ExamCard overview

 

This ExamCard combines the SENSE Torso coil and Endo coil in a dual-coil setup.

 

High resolution T2-weighted TSE series are included in the axial, coronal and sagittal planes to assess the areas of disease.

 

The T1-weighted images are included to assess of the lymph nodes for disease.

 

Axial diffusion weighted images are acquired to show areas of restricted diffusion.

 

3D CSI is performed to confirm areas of prostate involved in the disease.

Patient preparation

Position the patient supine, head first with the Endo coil in situ. Inflate the balloon of the coil with perflurocarbon solution, which provides no signal on the images and aids in shimming for spectrosopy.
