Listen to and read what our Body MRI 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 FREEZEit1 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.
Interview with Dr. Notohamiprodjo
We interviewed Dr. Notohamiprodjo after his talk at the Body MRI Lunch Symposium during the ECR 2014. He explains how new techniques in liver MRI lead to faster acceleration factors and improved image quality compared to older techniques.
Interview with Prof. Nikolaou
Prof. Nikolaou states that regarding abdominal imaging MRI is thriving with an increasing robustness and an increasing speed of the technique. Especially regarding the liver, a moving organ, where a lot of information on contrast, contrast dynamics, and different phases is needed to make valuable differential diagnoses.
Interview with Dr. Ong
Dr. Melissa Ong on why she thinks abdominal imaging is very important for primary staging to detect focal lesions, liver lesions metastases and multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma. Improved detection in the liver leads to a better influencing of therapeutic management.
"TWIST-VIBE revolutionizes the diagnostic possibilities for oncologic imaging. It allows for robust, high temporal and spatial resolution scans, improving lesion detection and characterization. Thus, the detection of otherwise almost invisible liver metastases as well as small HCC foci becomes feasible. This immediately impacts further treatment decisions for our patients."2

"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
