ExamCard purpose

This Release 5.1.7 ExamCard for Ingenia 3.0T is used for studies of the whole spine in three stations.

The ExamCard includes a sagittal survey, a coronal survey, B1 calibration for cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, sagittal T1W TSE, sagittal T2W mDIXON TSE.

ExamCard overview

Total scan time is 12:41 min.

 

One mDIXON TSE acquisition can replace two separate scans with and without fat sat, which can save time in pre- and post-contrast imaging.

 

In addition to its ability to save time, mDIXON TSE shines by consistently producing homogeneous fat suppression allowing us now to scan large areas with a homogeneous fatsat. 

We experience flexibility in changing TE and finding the right balance between resolution and SNR.

Patient preparation

The patient is positioned supine, head first, and scanned with the dS Posterior and dS Head base coils.

Postprocessing

Image fusion is included as inline postprocessing to obtain the whole spine images.

 

New series are generated in the Patient Database as T1W TSE, T2W mDIXON TSE water-only, and T2W mDIXON TSE in-phase.
