ExamCard purpose

The bilateral protocols of this ExamCard are meant to provide general assessment of the hips while relying on higher resolution unilateral protocols for specific evaluation of the affected hip. The unilateral protocols of this ExamCard were designed for the highest resolution possible within  approximately 5 minutes scan times per protocol. These protocols make use of Oversampling to reduce scan time and increase resolution wherever possible. For optimal protocol performance, this ExamCard should be used with the Ingenia posterior and anterior body coils.

ExamCard overview



Cor PD FS Bilateral ~ Coronal proton density with SPAIR fat suppression using a TI delay time of one half the SPAIR TR for improved SNR and quicker scan times for assessing both hips.

Cor T1  Bilateral ~ Coronal T1 weighted for anatomical depiction and assessment of bone marrow fat signal for both hips.

Cor STIR Bilateral ~ Coronal STIR provides high contrast to noise for fluid depiction and visualization of possible fractures or other lesions of both hips and pelvis.

Ax PD FS  ~ Axial proton density with SPAIR fat suppression using a TI delay time of one half the SPAIR TR for improved SNR and quicker scan times for assessing both hips.

Ax T1 Bilateral ~ Axial T1 weighted for anatomical depiction and assessment of bone marrow fat signal.

Ax PD FS Unilateral ~ Axial PD FS weighted sequence of the affected hip is designed for the highest resolution possible within 5 minutes.

Cor PD FS Unilateral ~ Coronal PD FS weighted sequence of the affected hip is designed for the highest resolution possible within 5 minutes.

Sag PD FS Unilateral ~ Sagittal PD FS weighted sequence of the affected hip is designed for the highest resolution possible within 5 minutes.

The ExamCard scan time is approximately 28:04 minutes.

Coil used: Ingenia Posterior and Anterior body coils.
