MR Fingerprinting1A giant leap for precision medicine
Features & Benefits
MRF Acquisition & Dictionary for robust, reproducible results
MRF acquisition is fast and efficient due to its spiral sampling trajectory that drastically undersamples the acquired data. The target anatomy can be described objectively, and multiple tissue properties can be measured simultaneously. The resulting data, or fingerprint, increases the ability to differentiate tissues and creates a more objective understanding of a patient’s condition.
Every MRF acquisition sequence has its own database of these fingerprints, or dictionary. A pattern-matching process compares the measured fingerprints with the pre-calculated dictionary. When there is a match, the properties of this fingerprint are assigned to a map. This process is repeated sequentially until all fingerprints have a corresponding property, creating a 1:1 map.
