ExamCard purpose

This release 4.1 Ingenia 3.0T ExamCard was optimized for evaluating patients with high potential of  unknown lesions, newly diagnosed breast cancers, and follow-up patients. These protocols make use of the high signal-to-noise ratio of the dS Breast 16ch coil to create high resolution imaging results.

ExamCard overview


Cor STIR ~ TSE Coronal STIR sequence is acquired through the midline of the thorax for the purpose of investigating breast tissue and axillary region for possible lesions.

 

 

Ax T2 SPAIR ~ Axial T2 SPAIR is acquired for bilateral assessment of each breast. The uniform SPAIR fat suppression relies on Smart Breast shimming to produce a high contrast and high SNR of breast tissues.  

 

 

Ax T1 ~ Axial T1 bilateral imaging is acquired to provide an overview of anatomical structures and correlated with the Ax T2 SPAIR.

 

 

Ax eTHRIVE ~ Axial eTHRIVE is acquired as five dynamics. This data is post processed offline using a Cad program being shared between three institutions within the Palo Alto Group.

 

 

Sagittal eTHRIVE ~ Sagittal eTHRIVE provides a single T1 dataset of images to correlate with the Ax eTHRIVE findings.
