Complete, quiet exams for neurology and orthopedics
With Quiet Suite1 you can conduct complete, quiet exams for neurology and orthopedics. The perceived noise reduction of more than 70% starts at the very first step of the examination.2 The noise reduction is kept throughout the whole examination process. It reduces the need for sedation for certain groups of patients such as children and elderly people, leading to higher patient satisfaction. And at no expense of image quality.


Inaudible imaging with PETRA

Quiet Suite includes PETRA, a sequence for 3D T1 imaging. For neurological imaging, PETRA can barely be heard over ambient background noise. With a Tx/Rx coil, PETRA is inaudible over background noise.

"The realization of quiet MRI is truly exciting. It will improve clinical care for many pediatric, dementia and psychiatric patients, while providing a more comfortable experience for all patients. For the many patients scanned at our hospital, T1-weighted PETRA provided the same diagnostic information as MPRAGE. PETRA even provided diagnostic advantages in some cases; for example, paranasal sinuses could be imaged without susceptibility related Distortion."3

“The PETRA sequence generates close to no acoustic noise and the QuietX SWI 20 dB less noise than conventional SWI. The quiet sequences are gentle for children and have been very useful in imaging pediatric patients. They provide a more comfortable scanning environment without compromising image quality.”3
