Pediatric MRI

Caring for our youngest and most vulnerable

Expand pediatric1 MRI beyond brain imaging

A wide range of revolutionary features and applications gives you high-quality, high-resolution images, even in challenging cases. From free-breathing abdominal imaging, extremely short breathholds, to high-resolution DWI – we revolutionize what’s possible.

Advanced coil technology allows excellent anatomical resolution

Head/neck imaging with several fat suppression techniques to choose from

Trendsetting applications for high resolution and fast body imaging

Up to whole-body vessels visualization support therapy planning

Flex coil can be wrapped around an individual hip for focused signal

Improved workflow for fast, high resolution knee imaging

Free-breathing, contrast-enhanced body imaging

Free-breathing StarVIBE compared to conventional MR imaging

Children1, may not be able to hold their breath for contrast-enhanced imaging of the abdomen. StarVIBE2 is robust to motion artifacts and makes free-breathing and contrast-enhanced exams possible.

Your benefits:

  • Patients can breathe freely throughout the scan
  • High-resolution, diagnostic images free from motion artifacts

 


High-resolution 3D imaging with reduced breath-hold times

Liver imaging with CAIPIRINHA
Liver imaging with CAIPIRINHA

Liver imaging can now be performed in 10 seconds. CAIPIRINHA is a parallel imaging data acquisition technique that can be combined with 3D T1 VIBE or 3D Dixon and offers four contrasts (in phase, opposed phase, fat, and water) in a single breath-hold.

Your benefits:

  • Higher SNR
  • Higher PAT factors are enabled with excellent image quality
  • Used pattern distribute k-space points more uniformly
  • Reduced patient stress by reducing breath-holds

 


Outstanding diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI)

Drop metastases to the spine, 2 year old female

RESOLVE delivers diffusion-weighted images with high anatomical accuracy enabling better detection and delineation of small lesions in the brain and spine.

Your benefits:

  • High-quality, high-resolution DWI and DTI for brain and spine
  • Reduced susceptibility and blurring artifacts
  • Insensitivity to motion-induced phase errors
  • Reduced SAR in comparison to TSE-based methods
