Patient preparation

The patient is positioned feet first on the right or left decubitis. Two Anterior coils are used. One Anterior coil is positioned on the front of the patient and the second one is positioned on the back of the patient.
Together with the integrated Posterior coil the patient is surrounded by coils for optimal SNR.

With this set-up no repositioning of the coils is needed when the fetus moves.

Post-processing / analysis

Post-processing steps for the DWI SENSE are included in the ExamCard.
For the DWI SENSE a registration is done and an ADC and eADC map is created.
