MAGNETOM Flash - December 2009

RSNA Edition

Siemens Healthcare |  2009-12-01

Dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) liver MRI plays a major role in the detection and differentiation of liver disease. In his article, Prof. Martin deals with timing and sequence adjustments of the arterial phase DCE scan, which are significant elements of liver MRI. Other articles focus on the effects of intelligent automation and user guidance in complex cardiac stress examinations, 3D large FOV imaging of the cervical spine and 3D knee imaging (syngo® SPACE). In a case report on metastatic breast cancer, you can read about the comparison of the results of whole-body MRI with PET/CT. 

 

We hope you will enjoy reading this latest edition of MAGNETOM Flash!
