MAGNETOM Flash1 – ISMRM Edition – Issue 65

2016-05-01

The articles in this issue focus on advancing imaging speed. This includes streamlined workflow (see clinical protocol optimization with GOBrain, the Whole-Body Dot Engine for combined chest, abdomen, and pelvis exams or workflow improvements with Fit-Upgrades), it also includes fast, motion-insensitive imaging (such as FREEZEit in pediatric lung MRI, parotid tumor imaging with GRASP or cardiac DTI). But also efficient multiparametric imaging, whether for diagnostics or for guidance of therapeutic interventions (see the introduction to MR Fingerprinting, fast and non-invasive characterization of suspicious breast lesions, or the prediction of treatment response in rectal cancer).
