Body MRI

Growth with Body MRI - enabled by FREEZEit

Take abdominal imaging to the next level with our embrace motion technology. MRI exams of the liver have been made difficult by contrast timing challenges and breathing motion. FREEZEit1, consisting of TWIST-VIBE1 and StarVIBE1, makes MRI faster and more robust than ever, overcoming previous limitations and significantly changing what’s possible.

TWIST-VIBE: Always the right contrast in dynamic liver imaging

One of the main challenges when using contrast agent is catching the right point of the arterial phase, which differs from patient to patient. If this point in time is missed, crucial information may go undetected. Our solution is TWIST-VIBE: it offers high temporal and spatial resolution for multi-arterial imaging with 100% precise contrast timing.

Your benefits:

  • Robust and fast imaging with full 4D coverage
  • Excellent images to plan surgical interventions
  • Reliable images and greater detail for every exam
  • Time and cost savings
  • No need for rescans


StarVIBE: Free-breathing, contrast-enhanced body imaging

Many children2, elderly patients, or very sick people may not be able to hold their breath long enough for a dynamic liver scan. Problems with breathing motion have thus excluded a large part of the population from particular MRI exams. StarVIBE intelligently resists motion artifacts and makes possible robust, free-breathing, and contrast-enhanced exams for these patients.

Your benefits:

  • Patients can breathe freely throughout the scan
  • Reliable imaging of patients otherwise excluded from MRI
  • Improved treatment thanks to more accurate results
  • Shorter throughput times and faster diagnosis
  • No need for rescans
