ExamCard description

This release 4.1.3 ExamCard is used for Liver imaging with a high dS SENSE factor of 4 in RL direction optimizing both speed and image quality of liver imaging.

Compared to typical liver imaging with SENSE in AP direction and arms down, applying high dS SENSE factors in RL direction delivers liver imaging with: 
- Reduced number of breath holds 
- Reduced length of the required breath hold
- Improved image sharpness 
- Decreased image distortion in diffusion imaging
- Patient comfort due to dedicated Arms-Up device
