Caring for our youngest and most vulnerable
Listen to and read what our pediatric MRI1 users have to say:
Interview with Prof. Dr. Schneider
At the ECR 2014, we spoke with Prof. Dr. Schneider to hear how new technologies such as FREEZEit2 make a big difference in how liver MRI exams are performed. Being able to overcome the problem of breathing artifacts has a significant effect on pediatric imaging, for example.

"Technological advancement has expanded the role of MRI in pediatrics from being predominantly a brain imaging technology to being a comprehensive multi-organ modality."3

Head of Paediatric Imaging, Monash Medical Center
"Radial VIBE (StarVIBE) sequence is ideal for MR imaging of pediatric patients. It significantly improves overall image quality and is motion robust, allowing for optimal imaging in free-breathing sedated pediatric patients."2,3
"RESOLVE [...] should serve to revolutionize spine imaging just as DWI did when it was introduced into routine imaging of the brain."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.”2,3

The responsible physician must evaluate the benefits of the MR examination compared to those of other imaging procedures.
