Features

  • 2D PACE (Prospective Acquisition CorrEction)
  • LOTA (Long Term Data Averaging) technique for motion and flow artifact reduction without increasing scan time
  • Elliptical scanning reduces scan time for 3D imaging
  • Selectable centric elliptical phase reordering via the user interface
  • Inversion Recovery to nullify the signal of fat, fluid or any other tissue
  • True Inversion Recovery to obtain strong T1-weighted contrast
  • Dark blood inversion recovery technique that nulls fluid blood signal
  • Saturation Recovery for 2D TurboFLASH, gradient echo, and T1-weighted 3D TurboFLASH with short scan time (e.g. MPRAGE)
  • Presaturation Technique. RF saturation pulses to suppress flow and motion artifacts. Up to six saturation bands may be positioned in any orientation
  • Tracking SAT Bands maintain constant saturation of venous and/ or arterial blood flow, e.g. for 2D/3D sequential MRA
  • Water Excitation. Spectral selective RF pulses for exclusive water excitation
  • Dixon for fat and water separation
  • RF Fat Saturation. Spectral selective RF pulses for saturation of fat
  • MTC (Magnetization Transfer Contrast). Off-resonance RF pulses to suppress signal from certain tissues, thus enhancing the contrast. Used e.g. in MRA
  • TONE (Tilted Optimized Non-saturating Excitation). Variable excitation flip angle to compensate inflow saturation effects in 3D MRA. TONE pulse selectable depending on
  • GMR (Gradient Motion Rephasing). Sequences with additional bipolar gradient pulses, permitting effective reduction of flow artifacts
  • Freely adjustable receiver bandwidth, permitting studies with increased signal-to-noise ratio
  • Freely adjustable flip angle. Optimized RF pulses for image contrast enhancement and increased signal-to-noise ratio
  • Simultaneous Excitation. Doubles the number of slices per TR for 2D GRE
  • Integrated Parallel Acquisition Technique (iPAT)
  • PAT averaging for motion artifact suppression using Self-Calibration
