ExamCard description

This Release 2.5 ExamCard has been created for whole body imaging using the Integrated Body coil.


The patient must be positioned feet first and supine. Extra pads are used to position the patient closer to isocenter.


The first scan is generating a sagittal survey (4 stacks) in ascending order. MobiView can be used to fuse the images. A coronal survey can be planned on the sagittal MobiView image and is scanned in ascending order. The actual scan will start from the feet.


PPU triggering is used when scanning the T2w and STIR images in the chest area.

Breath holds are used in the chest and abdominal area for T1w imaging; for T2w and STIR imaging respiratory triggering is used.


The ExamCard uses 8 stacks in each sequence. The total scanning time of the ExamCard is 42 minutes.


More detailed information on whole body imaging is described in Application Guide, Volume 2, Chapter 8.
