VASC-ASL enables excellent depictions of vasculature without a contrast agent. An MRA alternative for patients with compromised renal function in renal artery and portal vein imaging.

 
METAL ARTIFACT REDUCTION


METAL ARTIFACT REDUCTION

Advanced 3D FSE metal artifact reduction sequences, create images with greatly reduced metal artifacts, allowing visualization close to metal implants not able to be achieved with conventional scans.

 
CONTRAST FREE NEUROLOGY IMAGING


CONTRAST FREE NEUROLOGY IMAGING

3D pCASL sequences provide non-contrast brain perfusion acquisitions with analysis similar to dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion but without the risk of a gadolinium based contrast agent.

 
TIME RESOLVED IMAGING


TIME RESOLVED IMAGING

FatSep TRAQ enables multiple arterial time phases in a single breath hold greatly increasing temporal resolution at the peak enhancement time.
